A Primark spokesman said:
Primark takes its responsibilities extremely seriously.
To help alleviate short-term hardship, the company is committed to paying six months wages to more than 3,500 Rana Plaza workers, or their families, irrespective of whether they made clothes at Primark’s supplier or for other major high street names.
Primark is also committed to delivering long-term compensation to the workers employed by its supplier as soon as possible, irrespective of whether other high street names feel able to do the same.
After meeting some of those affected by the factory collapse in Bangladesh, it is clear that trade partners like the UK have a role to play.
Six months after the garment factory disaster at Rana Plaza in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, victims are still awaiting compensation.
