§ 36. Mr. Osborne
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how much of the new road construction is being done on a cost-plus basis; whether he is satisfied that there is real competition for these contracts; and what checks there are for eliminating waste in this Government expenditure.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
The answer to the first part of the Question is "None," and to the second part "Yes." All contracts are carefully supervised to avoid waste.
