Armitt reappointed to Infrastructure Commission

Sir John Armitt has been reappointed as chair of the National Infrastructure Commission for a further two years.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt said: “I am very pleased to reappoint Sir John Armitt as chair of the National Infrastructure Commission. Sir John’s extensive engineering and major project delivery expertise is hugely valuable, and I look forward to continuing to work with him to deliver sustainable economic growth across the UK.

“I am also very happy that Sir John will be joined by Julia Prescot, who has been appointed as deputy chair, to jointly lead the organisation as they prepare for the next National Infrastructure Assessment.”

Sir John Armitt said: “Chairing the commission is both a great privilege and a serious responsibility, offering impartial, expert advice to government on the role of infrastructure in helping solve some of the UK’s biggest economic and environmental challenges.

“I welcome Julia’s appointment as deputy chair which will assist our preparations for the next National Infrastructure Assessment in particular. Together, we and our fellow commissioners look forward to presenting the assessment to ministers and working with them, alongside others in the public and private sectors, to ensure our infrastructure is ready to face the future.”

Sir John Armitt’s new appointment period will end in January 2025 and Julia Prescot’s term as deputy chair will end in April 2027.
