CIC ’s views on the Budget 2005
Posted: 25th March 2005
Key representatives from CIC s member associations and institutions had a chance to discuss their initial thoughts towards the budget at CIC ’s Council meeting last Wednesday.
Whilst the budget was generally welcomed, and seen as a safe budget, some members – particularly Colin Clinton (President of the Institution of Civil Engineers) and Rodney Chartres (Chairman of Ground Forum) were disappointed that there appeared to be, once again, no real increase in investment in transport.
There was disappointment, particularly from Tom Foulkes (Chief Executive of the Institution of Civil Engineers) that there was no financial support available for students training to deliver better infrastructure. It was also felt that the Government was not taking a proactive enough role to address the skills shortages in science and engineering.
