HOUSING MINISTER CONFIDENT THERE WILL BE ENOUGH WORKERS TO BUILD HOMES

The Housing Minister says he’s not worried about there not being enough workers to ramp up house building.

With the employment rate at its lowest level since the Celtic Tiger there has been concerns about the amount of talent left to join the workforce.

Minister Eoghan Murphy says an affordable housing scheme is on the way despite it not being in the budget.

But he says housing groups don’t believe they’ll be short of workers to deliver that.
