HC Deb 21 May 1980 vol 985 c220W
Mr. Sproat

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if Hampden Park Limited, to which Her Majesty's Government have made a provisional offer of financial aid, is entitled to invite tenders and place contracts for the redevelopment of Hampden Park in part or whole without his authorisation.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

The provisional offer of grant made to Hampden Park Ltd. contained no condition in respect of tenders for the work relating to the redevelopment and improvement of Hampden Park. I am not yet able to say whether any conditions in respect of tenders would be included if a formal offer of grant is made to the company.
