There is a severe shortage of skilledtradespeople in Britain – bricklayers, plumbers, electricians, mechanicalengineers, HGV drivers,’ he added. ‘Where they were paying £500 a week at thebeginning of the year, the demand for those skills means they are now paying£1,000 a week.


That pressure on skills is huge,particularly in the construction industry in the South East and London.’


He accused UK firms ofhalting training schemes in the downturn and being left short when constructionpicked up.


That is not something that can be resolvedquickly, but companies need people who can work now, so they have had to put uppay and look elsewhere’, he added.
