Jon Trickett responds to news of final Carillion contracts transfer

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responds to an announcement by the official receiver that the final Carillion contracts have been transferred to new suppliers, said:

“In the wake of this announcement, we should remember the collapse of Carillion has had devastating consequences for workers who have lost their jobs and in some cases are still owed vast amounts in unpaid wages. This is a catastrophic failure and inadequacy of our regulatory system.

“The whole episode surrounding the collapse of Carillion once again underlines that the outsourcing model is broken beyond repair.

“In Government, Labour would fix the Tories’ failed approach to outsourcing, and would introduce a presumption in favour of bringing contracts back in-house.”
