Labour MP supports H&V News #LatePayment Twitter debate

Last Friday (November 13), H&V News held its second live Twitter debate on late payment, which saw Labour MP Debbie Abrahams – who recently hosted a cross-party meeting about retentions in Parliament – tweet her support.

B&ES head of legal and commercial Rob Driscoll, construction ICT consultant and social media expert Paul Wilkinson, Textura Europe and H&V News features editor Dina Patel-Purewal discussed the effect late payment of invoices has on the industry, as well as how these problems can be addressed.

Held between noon and 13:00, the debate saw 73 people contribute, 192 retweets and a potential reach of 141,225 followers.


Debbie Abrahams tweets her support

As part of our Time for Change campaign, H&V News is dedicated to providing a forum for those affected by the culture of late payments.

Late payment has long been a problem within construction. Over the past several years, many case studies outlining how different companies have been affected by this issue have appeared in the pages of H&V News.

We have been advocating for retention funds to be placed in trust and to change the culture of late payment for some time.

Our first #latepayment Twitter debate was held on 25 September.
