Lord Adonis to lead infrastructure overhaul


 

Chancellor George Osborne is to announce today the appointment of Lord Adonis to lead on an overhaul of the way in which the UK delivers major infrastructure projects. According to the Financial Times, Osborne will say that the infrastructure commission will begin immediately to establish “calmly and dispassionately what the country needs to build for its future and to hold any government’s feet to the fire if it fails to deliver.” The commission will be tasked with delivering a report early in this Parliament. Osborne will say: “We have to shake Britain out of its inertia on the projects that matter most.”
