ICE responds to the Chancellor's Summer Economic Update

Press statement

Responding to the Chancellor's Summer Economic Update, Chris Richards, ICE Director of Policy, said:

“The Chancellor has confirmed the UK will finally have an infrastructure strategy in the autumn, but we have been here before. The financial implications of the pandemic, and the difficult trade-offs it will bring, make a robust strategy crucial for repairing the economy quickly.

"We will need strong leadership and the challenging of old orthodoxies to drive through a plan. This will need a lot of work to get it right; let’s not waste the time we have."
