Enterprise

Further written evidence submitted by Leona Parker (ENT 59)

Update to written evidence submitted by Mrs Leona Parker a Magnox employee on behalf of herself.

Summary

· This note is in response to requests for comments on the Enterprise Bill and seeks to exempt Magnox Ltd from the Exit Cap payment requirement and is in addition to the information provided on 12 Feb 16

· Covers the need to include other publicly funded companies if Magnox Ltd is not excluded from the Exit Cap regulation

· Places limits on the 95K exclusion to staff and programme duration

· Updates the recommendation that Magnox is exempt from the Exit Cap payment requirement

Discussion

· This note is in addition to the information I provided on 12 Feb 16

· If Magnox are not excluded from the Exit Cap provisions of the Enterprise Bill then why are companies like Boeing Defence UK – who get all their income from the UK Government – not included in the Office of National statics database?

· To be fair, the Magnox personnel that need to be excluded are only those staff that have the relevant contracts in which the exit payment terms were agreed and only for the duration of the Decommissioning programme

Recommendation

· Recommend that Magnox is exempt from the Exit Cap payment requirement for the duration of the decommissioning programme; and, limited to only staff that have the relevant contracts in which the exit payment terms were agreed.
