    Just after Jeremy Corbyn’s announcement of a £75 billion investment in council housing, if he was to win the election, the UK building industry claims there is an acute lack of skilled labour. Is this £75 billion investment viable?

    This situation is only going to get worse in the short term if freedom of movement is halted after Brexit. Not sure where the industry goes from here?
  3. This is not a new problem, politicians from all sides have knowm about the lack of skilled workers in the building industry for years. Strange how they wake up when its election time!

    Seen Corbyn on BBC tonight being interviewed by Andrew Neil - Labour dont seem to have funded these promises correcty.

    0.1 of UK tax payers pay 12% of total UK income tax. The top 5% pay just over 50% of income tax - not exactly being let off the hook by the Tories!

    If anything the number of skilled employees in the building industry will dip just after Brexit - assuming it goes through - adding more pressure to the workforce.
