ICE in action is intended to inform members what the Institution is doing on their behalf.

The Association of Municipal Engineers has produced the following briefing sheets: Guidance on the conduct of CCT; Modernising planning government policy statement; Assessing the need for environmental assessment; Global warming: the Kyoto Agreement; and The Road Traffic Reduction Bill. Copies are available from the AME office at 1 Great George Street, enclosing an A4-sized SAE.

Recent ICE appearances in the national media include: the President Sir Alan Cockshaw, interviewed on the Today programme on 11 February about the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and the Jubilee Line Extension projects; An interview by the Independent on Sunday with Alex Ritchie, chairman of the graduate and students national committee on 1 February; and publication of letters on transport in The Independent and in The Times.

On Wednesday 25 February nine MPs and one peer, Lord Ezra, attended a meeting with the ICE London local association to hear a presentation by Terry Jagger and Terry Mulroy on the need for an integrated transport strategy in London.

On 17 February Sir Alan Cockshaw hosted a dinner meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on the Built Environment which opened with a presentation on urban regeneration.
