Building bridges


Building bridges between government and industry was the ICE's goal on Tuesday, when it held its largest ever House of Commons Westminster Reception. Over 120 big-hitting ICE members, some from as far afield as Russia, met over 70 MPs and Lords to press home the vital role played by civil engineers in society.

Particular emphasis was placed on urban regeneration. The government was represented by ministers including transport minister John Spellar, minister of state for employment relations and the regions Alan Johnson, and Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs parliamentary secretary Elliot Morley.
