Back building industry - plea

Have your say

THE Government is being urged to support the construction industry after it suffered a three per cent decline in the first three months of the year.

Training board CITB-ConstructionSkills has already predicted employment in the Yorkshire and Humber could fall by six per cent this year, mirroring a similar fall in completed developments.

There was no growth in output forecast in the region over the next five years. Public sector cuts had left a massive hole, a CITB-C spokesman said.
