Chamber reacts to news of Carillion’s collapse

Posted on January 15th, 2018

Reacting to news of Carillion’s collapse, Chris Hobson, Director of Policy at East Midlands Chamber*, said: “Carillion does not, at first glance, appear to be involved in any major projects active in the East Midlands, although there are many that feed this region, such as modernisation of the Midlands Main Line south of Corby and the HS2 Phase 1 works.

“However, there are many local firms, mostly in the supply chain for major projects elsewhere in the country, which will be impacted by Carillion’s collapse.

“The Government has already said that Carillion staff working on Government contracts will continue to be paid but their money will come through the receivers, not from Carillion.

“But it’s vital the Government acts immediately, where possible, to reassure the small and medium-sized enterprises in Carillion’s supply chain that the projects will continue, their contracts are safe and their workforces won’t suffer as a result of the collapse.”
