The Batched on Site Association (BSA) this week announced that it had written to the new Minister for Transport, Andrew Jones, for a response on the proposed legislative changes that are due to take place in the concrete industry.
The Batched on Site Association first approached Parliament 7 years ago, for help in its self-regulation process of the Batched on Site sector, which is currently worth an estimated £270m per annum to the UK economy. Since then, talks have been on-going between the Department for Transport and the BSA, who maintained a strong working relationship with the previous Minister for Transport, Claire Perry.
With the formation of a new Government last month and undoubtedly a new set of priorities for the Department, the Association was keen to ensure that its case remains at the forefront of the legislative agenda.
The BSA welcomes some of the changes proposed by the Department, accepts others, and in very specific circumstances is requesting the amendment of certain clauses in order to represent the interests of its Members, and protect competition in the concrete industry at large.
