UK's Barratt says much of construction workforce will return in May

May 1 (Reuters) - Barratt Developments said on Friday it would restart work on its construction sites from May 11, with a significant proportion of its furloughed workforce returning to work before the end of the month.

Britain’s largest housebuilder said it will start construction work on around 50% of its sites in the first phase and that it expects a limited number of additional home completions this financial year.

Its sites in Scotland would remain closed, along with showhomes and sales centres. (Reporting by Samantha Machado in Bengaluru; editing by Patrick Graham)
