Get Britain Building (GBB), the largest coalition of those involved in, and concerned with, the built environment (including the FMB), has launched 'Plan B', to unite the industry behind a common plan to return to economic growth for the good of UK plc.
'Plan B' sets out the economic and social benefits of continuing to invest in the construction industry: a realistic and accessible way to create two and a half million real jobs, maintain manufacturing capacity and the skills needed for the long term prosperity of the nation as a whole.
Commenting on the launch Mike Leonard, spokesperson for GBB said, "The market for new homes is showing signs of softening and we are facing up to the biggest public sector cuts of our lifetime. There has never been a more important time to unite as an industry and make sure our politicians know and appreciate the contribution that the building industry can make to the long term economic recovery of Great Britain.
The Coalition Government is committed to massive spending cuts and tax rises to reduce the massive debt burden. Rising unemployment is likely to be one of the consequences of this action and it is for this reason that we believe that having our Plan B is vital for maintaining and creating real jobs."
