Cameron: Infrastructure is a stepping stone to greatness

Prime minister David Cameron has described infrastructure as a “stepping stone on the path to greatness”.

He told delegates at the Conservative Party annual conference in Manchester that infrastructure remained a priority in his second term at Number 10.

Cameron, re-elected as prime minister in May, said: “Let me tell you: I am in just as much of a hurry as five years ago.

“Securing our country, growing our economy; jobs, exports, growth, infrastructure – these are the stepping stones on the path to greatness for our country – and we’ve been laying them every day since we came to office. We will continue to do so.”

The government was last month warned against cutting unprotected infrastructure investment at November’s Spending Review.
