Peter Aldous urges Government to back a replacement for the Construction (Retentions Deposit Schemes) Bill

23rd October 2019

Peter Aldous calls on the Government to support a Bill to outlaw the abuse of construction industry retentions to replace his Ten Minute Rule Bill which fell when Parliament was prorogued.

T4. With the Government being the largest client of the construction industry, will the Minister support a private Member’s Bill—similar to the ten-minute rule Bill that I introduced in the last Session—to outlaw the abuse of retentions? [900103]

I know how much work my hon. Friend has put into that issue. The Government have consulted on ways to prevent the loss of retention payments due to abuse or supplier insolvency. We continue to work with the industry and its clients to develop measures that will achieve that aim, and I very much hope that he will help us in that process.
