Carillion Liquidation – Information and Links
Carillion, the UK’s second largest construction firm, went into compulsory liquidation on Monday 15 January with £1.5bn of debt, including a £587m pension shortfall.
The government has said it will provide funding to ensure Carillion’s 450 public services contracts continue but this will not apply to private contracts. FIS has actively supported the Ten Minute Rule Bill which seeks to amend the 1996 Construction Act and ensure that retentions within construction are held in a third party trust scheme. The Bill will receive a second reading on 27 April. Evidence of retentions abuse will add support to this Bill, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have anything, all evidence will remain confidential.
