We will continue to conduct regular business wide internal performance meetings in which we look in detail at payment performance of our whole supply chain, specifically we will be focussing in more detail on those suppliers who employee less than 50 direct staff.

We continue to educate and reinforce the importance of the Prompt Payment Code requirements to our workforce and we support our staff through a network of regional representatives. The introduction of new invoice process technology from January 2022, means communication with suppliers will be become more timely and more focussed.
