The Review, which recommends the creation of an Independent Infrastructure Commission to develop 30-year plans - subject to Parliamentary approval - for the UK’s major infrastructure needs was Commissioned by the Labour Party in 2012, and the Party has now asked Sir John to produce a White Paper which would be introduced to Parliament in the event of Labour Government in 2015.

Sir John also spoke on what he believed were the key infrastructure challenges presently facing the UK, outlining energy provision and housing supply as the two most urgent challenges requiring immediate and bold action from policy makers.
