Jeremy Corbyn has called for an end to the "costly racket" of outsourcing public services as he clashed with Theresa May over Carillion's collapse.
In response, the Labour leader accused May and her ministers of negligence, and lambasted the wider system of providing public services through companies such as Carillion, Virgin, G4S and Capita.

The issue dominated Prime Minister's Questions, with Mr Corbyn accusing Theresa May and other ministers of "negligence" by continuing to award Carillion contracts in the second half of 2017 despite the firm issuing a series of profit warnings.
Corbyn began by asking why the government had signed £2bn-worth of contracts with the firm in the last six months, "even after the share price was in freefall and the company had issued profit warnings".
He also demanded to know why there was no permanent crown representative in place at Carillion as it fell into difficulties.
May responded by saying that to refuse to do any more business with firms after they released a profit warning "would be the best way to ensure that companies failed and jobs were lost".
Mrs May insisted that the Government chief commercial officer and the Cabinet Office's director of markets and suppliers took over the responsibilities while the position was vacant.
