Bill delay angers CIF

THE Construction Industry Federation (CIF) has accused the Government of dragging its feet on crucial legislation with the result that jobs are being lost every day.

The CIF made its accusation after it emerged that the Construction Contracts Bill, which will help ease the process of payments within the industry, may be further delayed until next year.

The Government had originally told the CIF that the legislation would be enacted by September 2011 and then by the end of 2011.
