Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister
Edward Miliband (Leader of the Opposition; Doncaster North, Labour)
The Prime Minister mentions the reshuffle; it is good, of course, to see the Chancellor still in his place. I have to say to the Prime Minister that he has come up with an ingenious solution to the problem of his part-time Chancellor: he has appointed another one—the former Justice Secretary, Mr Clarke. It is a job share; we will see how they get on.
I do not know whether the Prime Minister remembers, but a year ago he published his national infrastructure plan alongside the autumn statement. He said at the time of that plan that it was an
“all-out mission to unblock the system”.
Can he tell us, one year on, how many of the road-building projects announced in that plan have actually started?
