holding answer 9 July 2012

The National Infrastructure Plan 2011 identified a substantial pipeline of planned investment in UK infrastructure, including over 500 projects and programmes worth in excess of £250 billion. Almost two thirds of the expected investment to 2015 will be privately funded, so this is quite rightly not a centrally managed process.

The Government are ensuring that all Departments play their part in tackling delays and addressing key commercial and policy issues associated with the priority infrastructure investments identified in the National Infrastructure Plan. I chair a Cabinet Sub-Committee on infrastructure to provide a focus to this work.

An update on the progress made on these infrastructure investments was published alongside this year's Budget and the Treasury will be publishing a further progress update around the time of the autumn statement.
