CPA Comments on Labour’s Election Win

Following the election of the new Labour government, Chris Cassley, Policy Manager of the Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) said:  “The CPA offers its congratulations to Sir Keir Starmer and the Labour Party, on their win following yesterday’s General Election. 

“The new government must work with the construction industry in addressing critical issues such as decarbonisation and reaching net zero, improving productivity and business investment, building the new homes that we desperately need, and renewing our ageing infrastructure. 

“All of this requires a long-term vision and consistency from government in how policies are developed and implemented. Providing the stability and economic foundations needed for lasting economic growth comes only from engagement with industry in understanding the challenges companies face - and how they can be overcome. 

“As new ministers and officials take up their roles in the coming days, the CPA looks forward to working with the new government in achieving this aim,” he added.
