In March, Government approved the development of a licensing model for individuals working on certain construction and quarrying related activities, replacing the existing construction and quarrying skills certification schemes.  Government also approved moving to preparation of the general scheme of a bill to establish the model.  Work is now underway and a draft general scheme will be available by year end.  I also plan in the coming weeks to initiate a stakeholder consultation process on the main features of the Bill.
