Infrastructure Planning Commission Gorn.
The Times wrote:
Fresh doubts have surfaced over plans to build a fleet of nuclear power stations in Britain after the Government pledged to scrap a planning agency designed to accelerate construction of new reactors and other big energy projects.

Greg Clark, the new Communities Minister, confirmed to The Times that the Infrastructure Planning Commission, created by Labour only seven months ago to streamline Britains fragmented planning system, would be disbanded.

You should see some of the salaries these geezers have been trousering. And all for nowt!

However, Mr Clark said that the organisation patently lacks accountability. He added: We need to speed up the planning system and deliver new infrastructure like power generation. But it is vital that there are proper democratic checks and balances.


What a sensible thing to say. <Shakes head in amazement>
