Eversheds comments on potential for new English school-building programme

Eversheds has commented on the potential for a new English school-building programme.

Michael Conroy Harris, construction expert at the law firm, said: ‘To fund the construction works directly from tax revenues is an “old school” approach. It has the potential to kick-start repairs almost immediately without the additional time taken to line up a more complex package of funding. The industry will welcome the activity, regardless of whether it is seen as electioneering.’
