PM Shows Support For Construction4Growth Campaign

12 - 09 - 2012

Construction4Growth, a campaign calling on the government to invest in construction as way to stimulate the economy, has been welcomed by Prime Minister David Cameron on a recent visit to the National Construction College in Birmingham.

ConstructionSkills, the Sector Skills Council and Industry Training Board for the construction industry, launched the campaign in July of this year as a reaction to the loss of 45,000 construction jobs last year and a 5% drop in construction output this year.

With 3 million permanent and temporary workers involved in the construction supply chain, the campaign aims to encourage the government to invest in infrastructure, social housing, schools, new builds and skills development by promoting the importance of the construction industry to the overall wellbeing of the UK economy.
The campaign will also work to ensure that small and medium sized businesses will be able to exploit the opportunities that are expected to be provided by the Green Deal, a scheme which intends to lower the cost of carbon emissions by revolutionising the energy efficiency of UK properties.
Mr Cameron said: “The construction industry has faced huge challenges over recent years and I welcome the initiative it is taking through the Construction4Growth campaign to work with the Government to kick-start the industry and return it to growth.”
