The article discusses the ongoing debates in the British government regarding the country's planned infrastructure upgrades as of May 2011. It states that despite the country's commitment to environmentally friendly policies, collectively known as the Green Deal, too many reports and too little consensus is being produced. As a result, secondary legislation is not expected to come out till March 2012, which impacts various industries and households who are uncertain what direction the government will take. An overview of existing proposals is presented.
