The Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) which represents the businesses large and small that design and deliver our national infrastructure, has reacted to the general election result.
ACE chief executive Hannah Vickers said:
“The majority returned for the Conservatives has finally broken the deadlock in Westminster and will allow government to act decisively on Brexit and other issues.
“Our members will be delighted to see progress on the withdrawal agreement and future trading relationship, equally they will also want to see a return to ‘business as usual’ with progress on HS2, support for new projects like Northern Powerhouse Rail and investment in an ambitious social infrastructure programme to improve schools and hospitals.
“It will also ensure a continuing commitment to the Industrial Strategy and the opportunity to expand the Construction Sector Deal to deliver for consultancy businesses.
“We look forward to working closely with the government on helping to make their pledges on housing and vision for a net zero society a reality.”
