ACE responds to Chancellor's announcement

ACE has responded to the Chancellor's 2018 Budget which answered three out of four of its pre-Budget calls.

In a press release to the media, chief executive of ACE, Hannah Vickers welcomed the statement as it recognises "the importance of infrastructure investment to building the economy that the UK needs if it is to meet public expectations around housing, jobs and wages."

Three out of four of ACE's calls for the Budget were answered, but we also asked for the release of the remainder of the Construction Sector Deal funding and our statement urged positive steps from the Government in this area.
