    Carillion collapse exposed flaws in UK government policy - MPs

    The collapse of Carillion exposed the risks of using private companies to cut the cost of delivering public services and its failure could be repeated if the government does not learn lessons, lawmakers said on Monday. Carillion, which employed 43,000 people to provide services in defence, education, health and transport, collapsed in January, becoming the largest construction bankruptcy in British history. A report published by a parliamentary committee on Monday said the government's overriding priority for outsourcing had been spending as little money as possible while forcing contractors to take unacceptable levels of financial risks.

    Taking lessons from Carillion, Britain toughens outsourcer rules

    The government, which awards 200 billion pounds of public contracts to private companies every year, plans to force those doing critical work for government departments to provide a "living will" agreement that would pass their work to another supplier in an emergency. Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington said earlier on Monday he was also seeking to make it easier for smaller companies, charities and social enterprises to take on large government contracts, and would demand more transparency and social awareness from public service providers. Carillion collapsed in January when its banks halted their funding, leading to the loss of thousands of jobs and a political row over Britain's outsourcing of public services to private companies.

    Global security and cash management firm G4S expects notes and coins to drive its business, even as their usage falls in favour of electronic transactions around the world. Although data compiled by the British company best known for transporting banknotes in armoured vans shows people are increasingly paying for anything from their daily coffee to online bargains with cards and mobiles, Chief Executive Ashley Almanza said G4S is defying its own expectations. "Our fastest growing service line anywhere in the world in the last three years has been cash solutions in the United States," Almanza told Reuters in a telephone interview.
