Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Outsourcing: Value for Money (27 Jun 2018)

Jon Trickett: With 2,300 jobs down the pan and the taxpayer paying £148 million to clean up the Carillion fiasco, how can the Minister give such complacent responses on value for money? Will he now admit that earlier Front-Bench assurances from those on his side of the House that the burden of Carillion’s collapse would not fall on the taxpayer have turned out to be incorrect?

Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office: Outsourcing: Value for Money (27 Jun 2018)

Jon Trickett: The fact of the matter is that the Minister has admitted that £150 million has been paid to the liquidators. We see that his commitment to value for money has no credibility when we consider that only one civil servant is monitoring 700 taxpayer-funded contracts, with £60 billion in assets. The Government are sleepwalking from one outsourcing disaster to the next. Will he now accept...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Political Parties: Donations and Loans (28 Mar 2018)

Jon Trickett: Last month, access to members of the British Cabinet was auctioned off for around £55,000 per Minister—although the Secretary of State for International Trade was worth only £2,000. The Minister’s job in the Cabinet Office is to ensure “propriety, ethics and transparency” in government; does she agree that auctioning off access to Ministers undermines...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Jon Trickett: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting this debate. We have heard a number of important contributions, and it is difficult to disagree with any of them, given that nobody on the Government Benches actually bothered to make a speech, although they attempted to prick the arguments from time to time. However we voted in the referendum and whatever our views now, the recent revelations in connection...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Jon Trickett: I will, very briefly.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Jon Trickett: I think that the hon. Gentleman’s point speaks for itself. So far, so good. Those are the facts as I understand them. Until last week, there was evidence that the various Leave campaigns rubbed shoulders with each other, but no evidence that there was specific collusion. This is where the recent revelations by the whistleblower that have given rise to this debate change the nature of...

Capita (1 Feb 2018)

Jon Trickett: I will take your advice, Mr Speaker. Only two weeks ago, I warned that there was a danger that this whole outsourcing problem would become a set of dominoes, with one falling after another. I believe the House will conclude that the Government’s behaviour in response, and the Minister’s response today, has been marked by indifference to corporate mismanagement, incompetence in...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: Another one?

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, That she will be graciously pleased to give directions to the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster that the assessments of risks of Government Strategic Suppliers by Her Majesty's Ministers referred to in the Answer of 19 December 2017 to Question 114546 and any improvement plans which Crown Representatives have agreed with...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman, but I ask him to answer the following question. Does he believe it to be right and proper for the governing party to receive donations from a person who is currently exercising a supervisory public function as a Crown representative on the Government’s behalf? Does he think that that is right?

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: I will get to that in due course. However, the hon. Gentleman did not defend the practice of Crown representatives handing money to the Conservative party. Not only is the Crown representative for the energy sector a Tory party donor, but that person donated £15,000 to the Prime Minister, who took the money. Court testimonies submitted over the past few days as part of Carillion’s...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: I will give way but, in doing so, let me ask her the following question. [Interruption.] This is a debate.

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: Thank you, Mr Deputy Speaker. This is not Question Time, and we are not the Government. This is a debate, and I am perfectly entitled to ask questions and to make points. Does the hon. Member for Redditch (Rachel Maclean) believe that companies with public contracts paid for by taxpayers’ money should pay tax in the United Kingdom, yes or no?

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: Carillion did not go bust eight years ago, when Labour was in power; it went bust last week. The fact is that the hon. Lady has not answered the central point, which is that 13 of the 20 biggest Government contractors have subsidiaries in tax havens—[Interruption.] And the Minister is prepared to defend it. It is outrageous. [Interruption.] Leeds City Council, in which I no longer play...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: My hon. Friend makes a powerful and unanswerable point. We want a categorical assurance that the jobs of the subcontractors and employees are protected and that the services will be sustained. Is it not clear that the Government played roulette with people’s livelihoods in the most reckless manner? The truth is that the Government have been so wedded to the dogmatic idea that the...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: I will give way, but I want to make some progress.

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: My hon. Friend is absolutely correct. In the 16 years up to 2016, the dividends paid to shareholders increased every single year, while the pension pot and the conditions of work and the pay that the workers received was diminishing. By the way, Mr Deputy Speaker, I met a subcontractor of Carillion the other day, who told me that the company had a policy of not paying anybody in December,...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: I could stand here and reel off a long list of outsourcing companies that have been guilty of fraud, tax avoidance, blacklisting, failure to pay contractors, and even, shockingly, billing the taxpayer for tagging people who had died. They have presided over, and have been vehemently committed to, a failed and failing ideological project. That is my charge today. My opposite number, who I am...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: I am trying to make some progress. [Interruption.] Well, they will be glad that I am making progress, then. In the Minister’s role at the Ministry of Justice, what did he do? He awarded a £25 million Government contract to G4S. But that company was under investigation for fraud against the taxpayer. He snuck out plans to privatise the collection of court fines, and he even proposed...

Carillion and Public Sector Outsourcing (24 Jan 2018)

Jon Trickett: Well, we still pay tribute to our leader, unlike some of the Government Members, who seem to be making up a point about it. Let us see how many of them—[Interruption.] My party leader said that we have now reached—
