ECA and BESA call for budget boost

A four-point plan to improve the UK’s built environment has been proposed by leading engineering services bodies ECA and BESA, ahead of next month’s Budget.

The proposals for the Treasury to consider include investment in infrastructure projects, greater funding for SME apprenticeships and reforms to ensure public sector fair payment.

ECA CEO Steve Bratt and BESA Chief Executive David Frise commented, “If the new Government is to deliver a range of key infrastructure projects, such as high-speed rail, major housing developments and renewable power generation, then it needs to promote a competitive market and ensure the correct incentives are in place.”
