Feb 2 (Reuters) - Some 377 jobs are to be cut at collapsed British construction company Carillion while 919 positions have been saved, the government’s Official Receiver said on Friday.

Those affected will be entitled to claim for statutory redundancy payments, it said.

The Official Receiver is part of the UK’s Insolvency Service, an executive agency of the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. (Reporting by Rahul B in Bengaluru; editing by Jason Neely)
