Motion text

That this House gives its support to the Get Britain Building campaign which calls on the Government to start building social housing, stimulate home improvement with a cut in VAT and invest in infrastructure; notes that the campaign has already attracted a wide range of support from the trade unions, community groups and individual people; praises companies like Marshalls plc in Halifax who are leading on the campaign at alocal level; acknowledges that with the UK now officially back in recession, unemployment at 2.6 million and one in five young people now unemployed, that radical action needs to be taken to address the situation; calls on the Government to recognise the important role the construction industry can play in getting the economy growing; recognises that every 1 invested in construction generates 2.84 in economic activity; further recognises that there are over five million people in the UK on waiting lists for social housing; further acknowledges that urgent action needs to be taken to address this situation; and further calls on the Government to take note of the Get Britain Building Campaign and implement its policies as soon as possible to help stimulate economic growth in all regions of the UK.
