Sir John Armitt's Brexit working group will take the lead for CIC

The Construction Industry Council (CIC) met last week to discuss the opportunities and challenges posed by Brexit for the professions that they represent.   

Members agreed to provide policy input and support to the working group established by the Institution of Civil Engineers under Sir John Armitt to lobby Brexit negotiators.

Council members also agreed to collect and disseminate data and to share information amongst the professions.

CIC chief executive Graham Watts said after the meeting: “In the five weeks since the referendum, the leading professional bodies have been pro-active in providing policy leads and briefings on the likely impact of Brexit.   CIC can add value to that activity by supporting emerging consensus policy lines; acting as the hub for sharing information; and using the extensive network of the professional bodies to gather data and information.”
