(held on 15 September 2021)

This panel discussion was organised by DLA Piper UK LLP, and took place on 15 September 2021 at DLA Piper’s London office (160 Aldergate, EC1A 4HT). The aim of the discussion was to look at the future of UK infrastructure, post-COVID and post-Brexit. This would include how the Government, in conjunction with the public and private sectors, can plan and pay for our infrastructure, the challenges of the Government’s Build Back Better and Levelling Up objectives, and how we can do all this whilst achieving the green agenda.

The participating panellists were:

  • Rt Hon Jesse Norman MP, former Financial Secretary to the Treasury
  • Sir John Armitt CBE, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission
  • Dr Gemma Tetlow, Chief Economist at the Institute for Government

The panel discussion was moderated by DLA Piper partners Howard Bassford (Head of UK Infrastructure, Construction & Transport) and William Naunton (Head of UK Real Estate).
