Construction funding may create new jobs, safety boots users told

New jobs may be created in the country's building sector, with the introduction of further construction funding from the government, it has been suggested.

In a move that might see more building site workers making use of personal protective equipment like safety boots, it is believed that 22,400 new houses could be completed following the allocation of £550 million to various stalled projects.

John Healey, the country's housing minister, commented that up to 12,000 job opportunities could also be created as a result of the new finance from the Kickstart scheme.

He said: 'I'm making it a condition of getting this government money that all builders offer recruitment of local people and apprenticeship schemes.

'This means opportunities for 1,000 extra apprentices.'

Earlier in the month, the country's Federation of Master Builders suggested that those considering hiring building firms for new construction projects should check that they are warranted beforehand.
