Public and political affairs
ICE at the heart of Westminster
Located in the heart of Westminster, the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has long held a close relationship with Parliament and government departments and works constantly to engage with these key stakeholders. Through formal responses to government consultations and submissions to select committee inquiries, ICE's expert opinions and specialist resources of are represented at the very centre of politics and policymaking.
ICE also carries out proactive political engagement via its Expert Panels and members. Through the launch of major reports, such as State of the Nation and the publication of smaller policy position briefing documents, ICE maintains its influence over issues high on the political agenda.
Informal and private meetings and discussions are also held in confidence with ministers, opposition spokespeople, backbenchers, peers, civil servants, interest groups and business. These meetings often involve ICE's President, Vice Presidents and Director General and key experts from relevant ICE Expert Panels.
