I strongly welcome the government’s announcement that it will make the National Infrastructure Commission statutory and independent. This is a major advance for infrastructure planning in Britain and will give the commission the power it needs to do its work.

The commission looks forward to engaging with MPs and Peers ‎as the legislation advances to make this process as successful as possible.
