Government drive failing, says CPA

  • Comment

The government has failed to meet many of its own targets to improve health and education buildings and social housing, the Construction Products Association (CPA) claimed this week.

Its new report concludes that there has been significant slippage in meeting targets, citing hospital building, where work has begun on only 19 of the 31 scheduled to start on site between 2001-03. A further target to make 90 per cent of the health estate compliant with health and safety requirements by March 2002 has also been missed, the CPA claims.

CPA chief executive Michael Ankers said: 'This government needs to recognise that capital spending is about investment in the future.'
