Barry makes headlines after he took the fight against late payment to Parliament!

As you may or may not have already heard, on Tuesday 23rd April our founder Barry Ashmore was invited to speak in a late payment evidence session in Parliament. During the session, which was never exclusively stated as being strictly construction themed, had a distinct construction flavour due to the presence of Dortech’s Steve Sutherland (our Gold Buddy who made national headlines after saying NO to Balfour Beatty) and Balfour Beatty’s chief exec Andrew McNaughton.

So as you can imagine talk soon turned to the construction industry’s own late payment plight, and Barry fought the corner proudly, offering the MPs a quickly and cost effectively introducible solution he hope they can’t refuse, in the form of our Fair Treatment Charter. We are still waiting for the MPs to release their thoughts on entire cross industry late payment matter, however you can download a PDF of our proposed construction industry Fair Treatment Charter by clicking here. Barry and Steve Sutherland will also be speaking in full about their Parliament experience at our exclusive conference on 7th June, which you can find full details of by clicking here.
