The National Infrastructure Commission has a crucial role to play in setting out the country’s infrastructure priorities. Since being set up, it has produced three challenging and authoritative reports on smart power, London transport and a long-term strategy for transport in the North, and has recently consulted on its approach to the first National Infrastructure Assessment.

The government remains fully committed to the Commission and we are considering how it can best support the government’s new industrial strategy.
