Sin­gle mar­ket is cru­cial, say RICS

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY NEWS -

CON­STRUC­TION: The UK con­struc­tion in­dus­try could lose al­most 200,000 EU work­ers post-Brexit should Bri­tain lose ac­cess to the sin­gle mar­ket, ac­cord­ing to the Royal In­sti­tu­tion of Char­tered Sur­vey­ors. The RICS say this will put some of the coun­try’s big­gest in­fra­struc­ture and con­struc­tion projects un­der threat. It adds that for Brexit to suc­ceed, it is es­sen­tial to se­cure con­tin­ued ac­cess to the EU Sin­gle Mar­ket or to put al­ter­na­tive plans in place to safe­guard the fu­ture of the prop­erty and con­struc­tion sec­tors. Eight per cent of the UK’s con­struc­tion work­ers are EU na­tion­als.
