The UK Minerals Products Association (MPA) has outlined its priorities for the next UK government ahead of the UK General Election on 8 June.

According to the MPA, the next government’s “post-election policy development and implementation will be central to the future health of the UK economy and the minerals products sector.” Negotiation of the UK’s Brexit deal presents a particularly vital part of maintaining the UK’s competitiveness.

The MPA has outlined six main priorities that is believes will help the next UK government to deliver “prosperity for the UK”, including building confidence for investment, boosting growth, improving productivity and UK supply chains, promoting industrial competitiveness, easing taxes, and cutting ‘red tape’.

“Given the essential role mineral products play in underpinning the delivery of housing, transport and energy infrastructure, schools, hospitals, food, water, and agriculture, we hope that, whoever forms the new government, will take into account the practical measures we are proposing to help deliver their agenda and the continuing prosperity of the UK,’ said Nigel Jackson, CEO of the MPA.

The MPA represents the aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, dimension stone, lime, mortar, and silica sand industries in the UK.
