LORD ADONIS QUITS AS INFRASTRUCTURE TSAR

Peer resigns from National Infrastructure Commission to campaign on Brexit

Chief executive of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE), Dr Nelson Ogunshakin OBE commented on Lord Adonis' resignation from the National Infrastructure Commission:

"Throughout his career, Lord Adonis has served infrastructure well, yet he can be especially proud of what he achieved as chair of the National Infrastructure Commission where he was a champion for our industry at the heart of government. We urgently need to secure a credible individual, such as current deputy Sir John Armitt, to step-up as chair to maintain the commission’s momentum and its vital role in reminding ministers and civil servants, who may be distracted by issues surrounding Brexit, of the long-term importance of infrastructure investment to the economy and society."
