HC Deb 22 February 1978 vol 944 cc678-9W
Mr. Warren

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if foreign tenders for Her Majesty's Government contracts will be accepted even though these foreign firms cannot comply with the requirements of the new clauses added to the standard terms and conditions concerning pay control; and if foreign sub-contractors whose products or services are incorporated in tenders by British firms will also be exempt.

Mr. Joel Barnett

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 20th February to the hon. Member for Melton (Mr. Latham).—[Official Report, 20th February 1978; Vol. 944, c. 519.]
