To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what estimate she had made of the additional cost to the public purse of (a) delays, (b) structural flaws and (c) rebuilds on construction projects managed by Carillion before that company's liquidation.

The Department has not made an estimate of the specific costs relating to construction projects. The hard work of the Government means the cost to taxpayers of Carillion’s collapse has been £62m rather than the originally estimated £148m. We have ensured the continuation of all day-to-day services supplied by Carillion, with more than 15,000 workers transferred to new contractors.
