ICE engages with future members of Parliament

The ICE is hosting a reception for prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) from the main political parties at One Great George Street next week.

The reception, organised in conjunction with the Construction Products Association, Civil Engineering Contractors Association, and the Association for Consultancy & Engineering, is part of the ICE’s ongoing programme of political engagement ahead of the General Election.

Prospective MPs, along with the members of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Infrastructure, will have the chance to meet industry representatives and discuss the key issues facing the engineering and construction sectors.

ICE director general Tom Foulkes said the reception was an important opportunity for the Institution to strengthen relationships with current and future members of parliament.

“We are looking beyond the election now, into the next parliament,” he said. “To ensure we continue to influence and inform the government on the UK’s critical infrastructure issues − such as security of energy supply and long-term investment priorities - it is extremely important that we have the right relationships with all the major parties.

He said engaging with future MPs would help ensure the ICE is recognised as the leading source of advice and expertise on a wide range of issues.
