The Department for Communities and Local Government has announced that the implementation of changes to Part G will be delayed until 2010. Clive Dickin, Chief Executive of APHC, commentedon the announcement: "This is disappointing news. APHC and other organisations have made extensive efforts to communicate with those in the industry about the amended legislation - and now it has been delayed.
The changes to Part G have a far-reaching impact, not least in potentially increasing some business costs. Well-prepared businesses may now be faced with potentially misquoting and even losing contracts because of this very late decision. It is already a difficult enough trading period without this further handicap."
