Wes Streeting reacts to the Institution of Civil Engineers ‘State of the Nation’ report

Wes Streeting MP, Labour’s Shadow Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, responding to the Institution of Civil Engineers ‘State of the Nation’ report, said:

“This report should serve as a wake-up call to Government that we will fail to meet our net-zero target unless the Government makes the big decisions now on the long-term infrastructure investment we will need to get us there.

“The Government’s National Infrastructure Strategy with a green recovery at the heart of it is now long overdue. It’s time for the Chancellor to come forward with a plan to deliver the net-zero infrastructure plan our country needs.”
