Cameron backs infrastructure

Building major infrastructure is an essential element of the “entrepreneurial economy”, David Cameron says will push growth.

In his speech to the Conservative party conference this afternoon the Prime Minister said he wanted to grow the economy as well as tackling the budget deficit.

“We are acting to build an entrepreneurial economy… Big infrastructure projects like high speed rail, super fast broadband, carbon capture and storage,” he said.

“It will be the doers and grafters, the inventors and the entrepeneurs who get this economy going.”

Mr Cameron also said the government would “throw everything we have” into winning the bid for England to host the 2018 World Cup.
