Home Office Cleaners

Asked by Channel 4 how many government contracts Techclean had to clean government buildings, the PMOS said that departments had their own individual contracts. What was more important, which if Channel 4 had given advance notice we could have pointed this out yesterday, was that the system worked. They were caught. Asked when the checks were carried out, the PMOS said the Home Office operated their checks system and it worked. Across government it worked, which we could have pointed out if given more notice. Asked if there were any other incidents where illegal immigrants were employed, the PMOS said that it was a matter for departments to operate their policies, which they did. Asked how many employers had been prosecuted under the immigration act, the PMOS suggested they check with the Home Office.

Asked if the cleaning company’s contract was being reviewed, the PMOS said that was entirely a matter for the Home Office. It would no doubt want to check that all procedures were in place, but this had shown that the system worked. Asked whether the company had a contract with Downing Street, the PMOS said it did not.
