Media Release: Economic contraction, construction and the Scottish Budget

Graeme Brown, director of Shelter Scotland, the housing and homelessness charity, says: “In light of the shock contraction in the economy which the Office for National Statistics has blamed partly on stagnation in the construction sector, is now the right time to be cutting investment in building projects as outlined in the draft Scottish Budget?

“Not only is capital investment in building projects such as new homes crucial to those in housing need, but also to those dependent on the construction industry for their livelihood.”
