Witnesses

Wednesday 12 September in Committee Room 4A, Palace of Westminster

At 10.10am 

  • Phil Graham, Chief Executive, National Infrastructure Commission
  • James Richardson, Chief Economist, National Infrastructure Commission

Likely questions

The Committee launched its inquiry into the UK's post-Brexit relationship with the EIB in July 2018. This is its first public evidence session and will cover questions such as:

  • How important is the use of public financing for the UK's infrastructure?
  • Are there any specific sectors or industries that would be particularly affected by loss of EIB financing?
  • Post Brexit how much money would a UK infrastructure finance institution need to replace the support of the EIB?
  • What alternatives are there to establishing a new infrastructure finance institution? Could the remit of the British Business Bank (BBB) be expanded?
