IFG - Statement on the creation of a National Infrastructure Commission

The Institute for Government welcomes the creation of a National Infrastructure Commission, announced by the Chancellor.

Peter Riddell, Director of the Institute for Government, said:

"The Institute for Government welcomes the creation of a National Infrastructure Commission, announced by the Chancellor recently. This is a key recommendation of our Programme for Effective Government, building on our work with the LSE Growth Commission. The Government should ensure that the new Commission is designed to be as effective as possible. It is encouraging to see suggestions that the new Commission will directly recommend specific infrastructure projects, rather than simply identifying a more generic 'need'. This was one of the weaknesses in the previous Armitt proposals. The Institute also welcomes the appointment of Andrew Adonis, a former Director of the Institute for Government, as the first head of the Commission."
