Katja Hall: The Green investment bank is very welcome and it has a role to play. I would not have thought that would preclude the Government from also being smarter in their use of procurement.

The Government might have a role in procurement as well, but there is still a need for the Green investment bank. There is also a wider need to look at how we can get investment into infrastructure more generally, and we have been doing quite a lot of work on that.
