Beware government's big promises on infrastructure

Beware the government's big promises.

The Treasury has just admitted to me that the £50 billion spending on infrastructure due in 2015, and the whopping £300 billion over the decade, are exactly the same amounts that have already been promised.

And while they are very cagey about giving the precise numbers of projects completed as things stand today, only eight of the Government's original 40 priority projects will be complete by next April.

The year after, they say that figure will be 50 percent.
