A victory for certainty

National Federation of Builders

Builders look forward to a period of stability

The National Federation of Builders (NFB) congratulates the Conservatives on their general election victory and hopes it is a signal for the nation to get moving again after a prolonged period of inertia.

The election result has taken the nation closer to ending Brexit uncertainty and restoring business confidence, while ensuring that a programme for legislation can go through the House of Commons. NFB members have experienced a challenging period thanks to building projects being delayed until Brexit certainty was restored, so it is to be hoped that the wheels of industry will begin turning again.

Members of the NFB are particularly looking forward to seeing what plans the Government has on late payment, fixing the broken planning process, home ownership, social housing and procurement reform. Addressing these issues will once again make building and construction the engine room of the nation’s economy.

Richard Beresford, chief executive of the NFB, said: “We are well overdue a period of certainty and stability so businesses can thrive. The date of 31 January 2020 is not far away and the Government must redouble its efforts to make sure all industries and businesses are fully represented in planning for either a transition period or no deal.

“The Brexit deadlock has negatively impacted the productivity of construction and housebuilding but our members will be breathing a sigh of relief that a direction of travel can now be set. With so many commitments to small business, housing and the climate, we look forward to supporting Prime Minister Johnson to deliver his manifesto and ambitions.”
