Media statement on Carillion
Following Monday’s (15th January) announcement from Carillion PLC, it is entering insolvency. Gloucestershire County Council has made a statement:
Carillion PLC entered into insolvency along with several subsidiary companies in the group. We understand all companies will continue to operate, providing continuity of public services until further notice.
Gloucestershire County Council s unaffected by the announcement but recognises that the announcement has wide-reaching implications for the public sector.
Pete Bungard, Chief Executive of Gloucestershire County Council, said, “We sympathise with those public sector organisations that have been affected by Carillion. The county council does not hold any contracts with Carillion PLC or any of its subsidiaries. We also have no future schemes planned with them.
“We appreciate the private sector will be feeling the impact as well, and it’s a difficult time across the board. Over the coming weeks and months we expect there will be more clarity on what this announcement means in reality.”
