HC Deb 16 November 1955 vol 546 c31W
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.
