Briefing paper on a UK National Infrastructure Bank

11.02.21

In November 2020, UK Chancellor Rishi Sunak set out plans for a new National Infrastructure Bank to channel billions of pounds into capital projects. Following this announcement, IIGCC supported a letter initiative led by E3G addressed to the Chancellor, which sets out four design objectives that could guide the design phase of the new bank. The accompanying briefing document on the topic, available to download below, has been prepared by IIGCC and a group of expert organisations, led by E3G, as input for the HMT process to establish a new UK National Infrastructure Bank by March 2021.

The paper identifies four design objectives to support the current design phase of the new Bank. It discusses each design objective in detail and makes related recommendations for the form and function of the new Bank.

The accompanying letter to the Chancellor can be found here.
