Infrastructure: Construction

Question for Cabinet Office

UIN HL13707, tabled on 13 February 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of an analysis by the National Infrastructure Forum suggesting there may be instability in the construction sector as a result of government infrastructure projects.

The Government welcomes The National Infrastructure Forum’s report and the contributions it makes to how government and industry can best work together to deliver vital infrastructure.

The National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline sets out planned infrastructure and construction investment across the public and private sectors. By providing Government with the data that informs the creation of the Pipeline, both the public and private sectors are demonstrating commitment to the planned projects and programmes within the Pipeline. These will be in various stages of delivery and each publication of the Pipeline includes a delivery progress update. The National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline therefore gives greater transparency and certainty to the construction sector, rather than creating instability.
