‘Levelling up’ risks leaving legacy of white elephants without culture change
In this report from the influential Public Affairs and Accounts Committee (PACAC), the Committee cautions that the hundreds of billions dedicated by the Government for new infrastructure projects risk being squandered without better co-ordination of local projects, long-term tracking of performance and greater transparency over delivery. The report calls on the Government to clarify its overall aims for major infrastructure spending as soon as possible and provide greater detail on how it will support economic development and regional growth.
