Can brick layers work in the rain??

Our extension has been on hold for 2 weeks of this british summer!! The brickies claim they are behind on previous jobs due to bad weather...this is also holding up our job. The only couple of dry days here the builders have been on catch up! Is it possible to brick lay in rain or not??

No the bricks get wet and the mortar runs out making a terrible mess.Rain water causes a chemical reaction with salts in the brick causing efflourescence (white deposit that continue to emit from the brickwork for years).
