The taskforce’s attendees included representatives from leading business bodies, the construction trade sector, unions, banks and government.</p><p>In addition I have met leading business and construction trade bodies, representing Carillion’s sub-contractors, on 3 occasions in the last 10 days to understand the impact of Carillion’s insolvency on the supply chain, and agree actions that could be taken to mitigate this. It is our intention to continue to meet regularly with this group on an ongoing basis.</p><p>The Secretary of State and I met major high street lenders on 17 January 2018 to seek assurances that they will not penalise small businesses affected by Carillion’s liquidation.

Friend; the first, a meeting with the major trade associations and construction trade associations on 17 January and the second on 22 January to the second meeting of the Carillion Task Force comprising trade associations, TUC and other interested parties.
