          UK construction sector facing headwinds due to political uncertainty

          Kate Kirby, partner in the construction team at DWF, comments on the IHS Markit/CIPS construction PMI data released today. 
           

          Date: 02/08/2019

          Kate Kirby said:

          “The UK construction PMI figures illustrate the impact of global trade tensions and Brexit uncertainty that has resulted in construction activity falling for the third month in a row.

          “The underlying data is unfortunately pretty dark but speaking to various agents in the city we are confident the future will be brighter, a lack of transparency caused by Brexit ambiguity is holding back investment and confidence but it won't last forever."
