To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many recorded breaches of contracts by (a) Carillion and (b) Amey there were in financial year 2016-17.
Answer (Rory Stewart)
The Ministry of Justice records defects of the contract where there have been deficiencies in the service delivered by contractors. These are flagged to the contractor so that they can correct them in a timely manner. We keep all our contracts under a robust monitoring system. Defects have been reported to Carillion 578 and Amey 299 times since the start of the contract in June 2015.
