Exchequer Secretary takes infra brief

7 July 2017 Former transport minister takes responsibility for IPA and Infra Commission; no mention of PPP policy in brief

The government has confirmed that Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury Andrew Jones will take on the infrastructure brief, with responsibility for both the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) and the National Infrastructure Commission.

Among the responsibilities included in Jones’ brief is “infrastructure delivery”, however there is no mention of PPP, PFI or PF2 policy – all of which had previously come under the responsibility of Commercial Secretary to the Treasury Baroness Lucy Neville-Rolfe, who left her post last month.

A replacement Commercial Secretary has not been named and it appears that her infrastructure responsibilities have been transferred to Jones.

Jones was parliamentary under secretary of state at the Department for Transport from May 2015 until this year’s election.
