Primark has said it is putting together a "comprehensive support package" for those affected by the building collapse in the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka:
The fate of all the employees in the entire complex has still not been confirmed and a list of employees has not yet been established because many records were destroyed when the building collapsed.
Immediately the company has a list of employees relating to its supplier, it will then be in a position to begin appropriate discussions on the practical implementation of this support ...
A recognised framework for paying compensation already exists, having been developed by trade unions and trade associations to deal with situations such as this. This framework has been accepted by leading NGOs. This means that compensation will be paid according to this pre-existing formula which is grounded in international insurance standards and local law.
A further comprehensive programme covering the immediate and long-term needs of the survivors and the dependents of the deceased is also being finalised. This programme will include medical and occupational rehabilitation.
A young woman has been freed from the wreckage of a building in the Bangladeshi capital 17 days after its collapse killed hundreds.
The Bangladesh High Commissioner has told me he believes that Western companies share some of the blame for conditions in Dhaka's factories.
Primark, who bought products from the factories in the destroyed Rana Plaza in Dhaka, will pay compensation to the families of the victims.
