National Infrastructure Plan 2010

Volume 517: debated on Monday 25 October 2010

The Government have today published a national infrastructure plan outlining its vision for the future of UK economic infrastructure.

This is the first ever infrastructure plan for the UK. It outlines the scale of the challenge facing UK infrastructure and the major investment that is needed to underpin sustainable growth in the UK. It focuses on the networks and systems—in energy, transport, digital communications, flood water, waste management and in science—that provide the infrastructure on which our economy depends. The plan gives clarity on the role of Government in specifying what infrastructure we need and how they can remove barriers to mobilise both private and public sector resources to maintain our world class infrastructure.

Copies of the document have been deposited in the Libraries of both Houses and are available on the Treasury website at:
