CBI responds to Armitt infrastructure report

The CBI responded to a report by Sir John Armitt, Chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority, on how to deliver the UK’s future infrastructure requirements.

Katja Hall, CBI Chief Policy Director, said:

“The World Economic Forum downgrade of UK infrastructure competitiveness sends a clear message that we need to rise above the parliamentary cycle to take some important strategic decisions to plan for the next 30 years.

“An independent Commission would ensure that politicians could no longer duck the difficult infrastructure questions which our long-term economic prosperity depends on.

“But we do need to make sure that if an independent Commission were to be introduced it wouldn’t cut across decisions already underway, like the Davies review of aviation.

“This report is a thoughtful contribution to the debate about the UK’s long-term infrastructure needs and should be considered by all political parties.”
