BCC: National Infrastructure Commission Must Fast Track Delivery

Commenting on Labour’s consultation on a National Infrastructure Commission, John Longworth, Director General at the British Chambers of Commerce said:

“Businesses would support the creation of a National Infrastructure Commission if it delivers faster action on the ground, more certainty for investors, and long-term strategic planning. However, we’ve been here before. Britain’s creaking business infrastructure is the result of short-term thinking and constant u-turns by politicians of all parties.

“On aviation, roads, rail, energy generation and digital connectivity, we have a lot of ground to make up. A National Infrastructure Commission will only work if its assessments are not constantly undermined by Westminster petty politicking and local nimbyism.”
