EDINBURGH (Reuters) - British business services company Capita (CPI.L) said it would adopt a continuity plan to protect services it provides to the public sector in times of crisis.

Capita did not say by when it would introduce the measure, aimed at ensuring public services are protected in a crisis following the collapse of outsourcing firm Carillion at the start of this year.

“Capita has signed up to adopt “living wills” along with Serco and Sopra Steria,” it said in a statement.
