Lloyds Banking Group PLC has set aside £50 million and HSBC Holdings PLC said it will offer support worth £100 million to help small firms within Carillion's supply chain that fear they will suffer after the company went into liquidation this week. It managed or co-managed major, unfinished construction projects for the government, like a high-speed rail link among English cities; a hospital near Birmingham; another hospital, in Liverpool; and a highway near Aberdeen, Scotland.
'It is only going to be a sticking plaster to help those who are viable to continue in business and recover in time, ' Mr Cherry told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
He insisted that Carillion's failure should not be used as a justification for ending the system of private sector provision of public services.
Business Secretary Greg Clark has said support from a Government-led task force and the banks will "maximise continuity" for small businesses.
