Save Construction in northern Ireland

29 Signatures Goal: 100

The construction Sector in Northern Ireland has been ravaged by the recession, some 21,000 jobs have been lost and it is estimated that 13,000 of the people who lost jobs remain unemployed. The Construction Sector in Northern Ireland (as well as many other sectors) has been heavily reliant on Public Sector projects such as schools, hospitals and roads. The large scale removal of these projects has been a major contributor to the decline in the Construction Sector in Northern Ireland, due to the private sector being too small to absorb the Public Sector cuts. Mr Osbourne annonced on 'Slash Wednesday' that capital spending will be reduced by a further 40%, if this happens it will signal the end of the Construction Sector in Northern Ireland as we know it This petition is calling on the Government to review what it has pledged to do, the private sector in Northern Ireland could not absorb the job losses which happened prior to Slash Wednesday, therefore, will not be able to absorb them post Slash Wednesday, the consequences will be far greater if the Slash Wednesday proposals are carried out Rather than killing off an already beleagured industry and creating widespread unemployment in Northern Ireland we urge you to do something to stimulate this industry and it will help generate the wealth that you so desparately need
