The Government has today published a plan that brings together all of its infrastructure priorities over the next five years.

Lee Hopley, Chief Economist at EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, says: “With each iteration of the National Infrastructure Plan, the UK's ability to manage national infrastructure delivery pushes the boundaries of world class delivery. Today's report is no different and, complemented by the recently announced National Infrastructure Commission, sets the UK up to seriously tackle infrastructure that can support UK productivity growth. The delivery plan now provides some operational certainty about priorities that ensures critical UK supply chains can gear up for implementation.  

“If this delivery plan is about building confidence in Government decision-making, the commitment to a response on the Airports Commission recommendation will be a key test.  The UK really does need to get on with delivering what is needed to support Britain's exporters with their ambitions.”
