Talked the talk
Now let them walk the walk.
First small companies can't offer comfy directorships to failed politicians.
Small companies can't offer nice days out and backhanders before offshoring hundreds of jobs.
Small companies can't afford to manufacture in the UK through a combination of
import taxes on components - Raspberry Pi.
Stiffer employment and health & safety rules (subsidise maintenance / tax import goods that don't have similar standards).
Can't employ cheap overseas staff using ICT.
Can't offshore easily - Maybe insist UK Government data can only be handled by a UK citizen who is a UK tax resident security vetted as such. Imagine that is legal many customers insist on the first part.
Small companies allegedly cannot get on the government contracts because they are small companies. Change that and favour any company that will keep money in the UK, make it part of the contract the employment will stay in the UK and the profits won't pass through a tax haven.
Programming is a science like Maths and physics, it can also be an art (there is normally more than one solution to most problem). The discipline of planning, recursively developing, testing and documenting is something most companies and employees would benefit from learning.
The proud ignorance of technology displayed by many employees in the UK (Young & OLD) is frightening Most employees will use a form of computer every day.
