Haven't received payment from govt, how to pay the subcontractors and suppliers?
Where the fuck does the contractor gets the money to pay others when they haven't received what is due to them?
Do you understand that there is often a "Pay-When-Paid" Clause in the contract between main contractors and subcontractors? You mean they must pay before being paid? Are you directing a statutory change in law that makes it ultra virus for the pay-when-paid clause? or, are you trying to tell us that the government will be brave to go against the law they had enacted, that is, the Contracts Act 1950?
What the contracts provide is that, in the event the main contractor failed to pay the nominated subcontractors (NSCs) upon receipt of their payment within a reasonable period, then the employer can make direct payment to the NSCs therafter. This does not include the domestic subcontractors who will have to accept the risk if they decided to contract.
You think Ministers or the government is above the law? that they can have wide discretionary and authority to act according to their whims and fancies and in total disregard to the law enacted?
Justice, OMG, where is justiciability?
