SDLP meets Auditor General on Carillion

SDLP MLAs Patsy McGlone and Pat Catney have met with the Auditor General for Northern Ireland following the collapse of Carillion.

Speaking after the meeting, Mr McGlone said, “We’ve had a positive meeting with the Auditor General. The collapse of Carillion has left hundreds of workers facing immense uncertainty about their job security in the short term and their pension security in the longer term.

“It’s critical that all efforts are now focussed on supporting those workers as well as identifying the failures that led to such a substantial collapse in a firm operating on a significant number of public sector contracts.

“The news today that Capita stocks have nosedived places further pressure on the system of outsourcing public services and will require a significant review. We also referred the security of the PIP assessment contract, which currently rests with Capita, to the Auditor General for further inquiries.

“The SDLP will be continuing to liaise with the Audit Office as further inquiries are raised to ensure the security of the Carillion workers and of public sector contracts.”
