To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to Written Statement of 15 November 2016, HCWS251, Update on HM Revenue and Customs' contract with Concentrix, for what reasons HM Revenue and Customs paid £500,000 towards some of Concentrix's exit costs from its subcontracts; and if he will make a statement.

The costs being paid to Concentrix are, as stated in the Written Statement of 15 November 2016 (HCWS251), in regard to exit from a number of established subcontracts. These costs are only in respect of those subcontract breakage costs that Concentrix will bear as a result of early termination, which would not have been incurred by Concentrix if the subcontracts had continued until expiry and that are unavoidable, proven, reasonable and not otherwise capable of recovery.
