ICE responds to Liberal Democrat's election manifesto

25 November 2019

Commenting on the publication of the Liberal Democrats' general election manifesto, Nick Baveystock, Director General of the Institution of Civil Engineers, said:

"Infrastructure investment is critical to the long-term future of the economy. But that infrastructure has to support our quality of life: clean air, community and opportunity. Net-zero has to be at the heart of this.

"To have any chance of achieving this we need people to make difficult choices and only then will we build a comprehensive national infrastructure strategy; deliver the net-zero target; and improve productivity across the economy. This is what those in Government can drive."
