Relief in the construction industry. 

The Government's agreed to allow manufacturing of some building products to restart in Auckland during level 4. 

There's been a supply chain issue looming because those in level 2, in the rest of the country, can resume construction. 

Construction Industry Council chair Graham Burke told Kate Hawkesby it's a problem they'd been talking with the Government about before the dual Alert Levels were announced. 

"Obviously quite complex, and we're very pleased we've come out with an approach that will hopefully work."
