The Government must also address the causes of the problems and not just the symptoms – Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Shadow Business Secretary, responding to the announcement of support for businesses affected by Carillion, said:

“Although welcome news for SMEs, the Government must also address the causes of the problems and not just the symptoms. If Project Bank Accounts, Retention Deposit Schemes, enforcement of 30 day payment periods and Government vehicles were used many of the problems we see would not even have arisen”
