    Disagreement between National and the construction industry, over the pressures facing the industry

    Disagreement between National and the construction industry, over the pressures facing the industry


    The recent liquidation of Tauranga's Oceanside Homes and Wellington's Armstrong Downes has exposed the pressures the multi-billion dollar industry is under.

    National MP Andrew Bayly says the issues could tip the economy into recession.

    But Construction Industry Council Chairman Graham Burke says talking about a recession, is the right way to go about making one happen.
