Lord Adonis resigns from NIC

03 January 2018

Lord Adonis served as interim Chairman since the launch of the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) in October 2015 and Chairman since April 2017. His resignation comes as a result of "fundamental differences [with the Government] that simply cannot be bridged." These include policies on Brexit and the "indefensible" decision to bail out the Stagecoach/Virgin East Coast rail franchise.
