BASA are members of the Construction Products Association (CPA) and the CPA attended a meeting with the Secretary of State for Business, the Minister for Small Business and other key members of the construction supply chain on 15th January 2018. Following this meeting BASA members are being asked to provide confidential information through the CPA to be able to understand the full scale of the issue
Following the liquidation of Carillion on Monday morning, the CPA was asked to attend an urgent meeting with the Secretary of State for Business, the Minister for Small Business and other key members of the construction supply chain on 15th January. At the meeting the Secretary of State asked the supply chain to provide information on Carillion contracts (the CPA has asked Barbour ABI for the data) and also to gather information from CPA members regarding exposure to Carillion and potential issues arising across the supply chain. BASA are a member of the CPA and so we are now asking members to input into this impact assessment.
Whilst BEIS are particularly concerned about the impact on SMEs, they are also keen to understand the full scale of the issues. Hence, the CPA would be grateful if you could read the following questions and respond directly to either firstname.lastname@example.org or via BASA secretary Lorna Williams (email@example.com)
What Secretary of State would really like to know is:
Q: What % of your turnover do your contracts with Carillion account for? (%)
Q: Would you be willing to disclose the total value of those contracts? (£ Million)
Q: What other issues have you encountered or do you expect to encounter with Carillion projects you are involved with (including what hit do you expect to take)?
If you could respond to firstname.lastname@example.org in confidence indicating what information you are happy for us to share with the Secretary of State. Please note your answers will not be used for any purpose other than helping BEIS to illustrate industry issues.
