Industry struggling after rise in levy

Published 19/04/2011

Politicians from the Lagan Valley, Antrim and Greater Belfast areas have shown their support for the quarry products sector companies. The Quarry Products Association Northern Ireland (QPANI) is holding a series of events prior to the Assembly and council elections, the latest being held at the Island Centre in Lisburn.

Councillors from all four main political parties heard QPANI regional director, Gordon Best, explain how the suspension of the aggregates scheme and the rise in aggregates levy here from 40p to £2 per tonne was impacting on the industry.
