BCSA lobbies for improved Construction Act
After a number of years of lobbying and campaigning, the changes to the Construction Act contained in Part 8 of the Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill are reaching their completion in the House of Commons. The Bill completed Committee stage on 18 June and at the time of going to press, is waiting for Report stage.
At every stage, BCSA members and its SEC Group colleagues have sought support from politicians and senior civil servants to amendments to Part 8 to improve the bill.
Marion Rich, BCSA Director of Legal and Contractual Affairs, said: “BCSA members have been very active in lobbying their MPs and other representatives. The positive response to this has allowed SEC Group to send briefing material to over 200 MPs.”
BCSA and SEC Group continue to ensure that amendments are laid at every stage of the process with a view to improving the bill.
