The National Infrastructure Commission has real power… for now

The National Infrastructure Commission will be more powerful over the next three years than any time after that. This is for three reasons: first, the Chancellor must show that Labour politicians who join the Government’s “big tent”, like Andrew Adonis, achieve real influence by switching allegiance; second, the Treasury will use the “independence” of the NIC to justify spending decisions in a tough financial climate; and third, the NIC’s priorities were set in agreement with the current Government, so there will never be more confluence of interest in achieving those priorities than there is now.
