Call for evidence on Carillion business dealings


The government is calling for businesses that dealt with Carillion in the lead up to the construction giant’s collapse to assist with the statutory investigation.

Responses to an online survey, which will be open until 9 May, will inform the official receiver’s investigation that will examine the cause of the insolvency, including business dealings and affairs, as well as reporting on the conduct of the directors. 

The call for evidence is aimed at anyone that did business with Carillion rather than former employees of the company, although the official receiver may seek submissions from ex-Carillion workers at a later date.

There will be around 30 questions to answer, the Insolvency Service said, and all information provided will be treated as confidential. 

The questionnaire, which will be live for four-weeks, is being carried out by Special Managers PWC. Partners at the ‘Big Four’ firm came under fire in front of a joint parliamentary inquiry into the collapse last month as MPs accused it of ’milking the Carillion cow dry’.

It was revealed during the hearing that the liquidation had cost £20.4M between 15 January and 21 March.
