Greg Hands - HM Treasury

Today I announce the publication of the governments response to three reports by the National Infrastructure Commission on pressing infrastructure challenges facing the country:

  • Smart Power, published on 4th March, sets out a plan to ensure that supply and demand are balanced as efficiently as possible in the energy system, and the government welcomes the report as an opportunity to transform the future of the UKs electricity sector /government/publications/smart-power-government-response-to-the-national-infrastructure-commissions-report

  • Transport for a World City, published on 10th March, sets out priorities for future large-scale investment in Londons public transport infrastructure, and the government welcomes the report as an opportunity to support Londons continued growth through strategic, long-term investment in infrastructure /government/publications/transport-for-a-world-city-government-response-to-the-national-infrastructure-commissions-report ;

  • High Speed North, published on 15th March, is a plan to transform the connectivity of the Northern cities, and the government welcomes the report as an opportunity to help drive forward the Northern Powerhouse .

The National Infrastructure Commission was announced in October 2015, to provide expert independent analysis of the long-term infrastructure needs of the country. The Commission has been operating in shadow form since then.

At Budget 2016, the Chancellor confirmed that the government has accepted the Commissions recommendations in its recently published reports. Copies of the documents will be deposited in the Libraries of the House.

The government has recently consulted on the structure, governance and operation of the commission, and proposes to introduce legislation to put the commission on a statutory footing.
