The collapse of Carillion has put work at Sunderland's old Vaux site on pause - but I'm confident it will not be stopped for long.
My main concern is for the sub-contactors affected by this, and that any money owed to them by Carillion is outstanding -
because they are way down the line in the pecking order.
I’m worried about the future of these firms, because they operate on very small margins and don’t have the comfort of being part of some big company.
Any firms affected, apprentices facing unemployment or companies who could step in to help them are welcome to call my office on (0191) 565 5327 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
