(… and one site contacts OFT saying it was left out of the investigation)
The discussion concerns the Cirrus price-fixing scandal and Peverel’s derisory offer to make a £100,000 “goodwill” payment to the 64 sites affected.
It is VITAL that affected sites do not accept any goodwill payment from Peverel, or they may lose out in any eventual settlement of the scandal.
The Peverel / Cirrus bogus tendering was again mentioned in the Commons last week and will not go away.
The OFT is considering the case of a retirement site in Wallingford. The residents believe that it was a victim of collusive tendering by Cirrus, but was left out of the investigation. They have provided evidence demonstrating this.
Of course, in this case there would be no question of leniency applying to Peverel if the site was wrongly not included in the OFT investigation.
Carlex / LKP readers are invited to communicate directly with me about this meeting with Entwistle.
I hope readers noted that there has been a surge in right to manage interest after the Cirrus case, according to the RTMF.
