Bridget Phillipson comments on the Government’s infrastructure announcement

Bridget Phillipson MP, Labour’s Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, commenting on the Government’s infrastructure announcement, said:


“This government is all talk and no action, with nearly £200 billion worth of major government projects including new Army vehicles, HS2’s eastern leg and the coronavirus catch-up scheme for kids facing delay risks, as a recent Infrastructure and Projects Authority report revealed.


“As we look ahead to the spending review this autumn, we need to hear fewer bombastic campaigns from the Conservatives and see more of them getting on with the work of delivering what they’ve already promised as a government that they’ll do.


“Labour will buy, make and sell more in Britain as a priority for our recovery so we can get major projects our country needs back on track, boost British businesses and get our economy firing on all cylinders.”
