CECA: Labour Government Must Leave No Stone Unturned In Pursuit Of Growth

The UK’s civil engineering contractors have welcomed the formation of a new Labour Government and said that if it is to be successful in delivering growth it must work closely with industry in the months and years ahead.

Commenting, CECA Director of Operations Marie-Claude Hemming said: “Now that the dust has settled from the 2024 General Election, it is imperative that the new UK Government moves swiftly to unblock delayed projects and leave no stone unturned in pursuit of growth.

“Our membership includes companies of all sizes in all parts of England, Scotland, and Wales – all of which are ready to work with government at all levels to drive growth in the economy, boost connectivity, and create well-paid, highly skilled jobs.

“A booming infrastructure sector is the backbone of any successful economy, and we are heartened that the Labour Party has recognised the UK’s civil engineering industry as a cornerstone of its vision for delivering growth for the benefit of businesses and communities across the UK.

“We stand ready to work with the new Government to make this vision a reality – by delivering world-class infrastructure projects, addressing pinch-points in investment, and ensuring the skills are in place to build the stronger, more sustainable British economy that we all want to see.”
