Since the financial crisis, infrastructure investment has been squeezed in the interest of deficit reduction. It is now widely accepted that the UK needs an industrial strategy that provides significant investment in housing, transport, energy, and digital infrastructure to improve productivity, reduce regional imbalances and raise real wages. Jonathan Reynolds has a business background. In parliament he has focused on transport, energy and financial matters. He will discuss Labour’s approach to the key issue of significant and sustained investment in productive infrastructure.
