Builders in Wales are seeking clarity on whether they can continue to work in people’s homes during the fire-break lockdown in Wales.

Ifan Glyn, Director of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) Cymru said: “Builders and their clients have been left in limbo.

The originally published Welsh Government Frequently Asked Questions guidance told them that work in people’s homes would need to stop.

Without warning, the guidance was yesterday changed. A section in the guidance now tells them that work can continue, yet the very next section contradicts this and tells them that they will need to down tools.

Our members want to do the right thing, but to be able to do so, they need an urgent answer from Welsh Government on this fundamental question.”
