Dear Mr Bradshaw

Can you please explain to me what happens to the debt in the event a PFI contractor goes bankrupt?

Let me give you a couple of clear examples.

1. Carrilion

As you are aware, Carrilion are the PFI Contractors for Exeter 6 PFI schools.

2. Balfour Beatty Group who hold multi BILLION Pounds PFI Contractors nationwide.

Are these PFI contracts adequately ring-fenced in the event of bankruptcy?

Could this be why PFI figures are purposely omitted from the National Debt.

I suppose the taxpayer will pick up the bill for any PFI bankruptcies.

Look forward to your response.

With thanks

Alan M Dransfield
