Committee on Budgetary Oversight
Summer Economic Statement: Minister for Finance
I thank the Minister and his officials for appearing before the committee on what is a very important topic. Productivity levels in the construction sector have been mentioned at a committee and it is something I have spoken about with the Minister previously in terms of the ambitious plans contained within the national development plan. I am mindful of the fact that a construction sector group was established by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to look at the productivity challenges in the construction sector. Does the Minister have an update for the committee on the work of the group and its outcomes to date?
