HC Deb 24 January 1983 vol 35 cc338-9W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, in order to increase competition and encourage local employment, he will allow the South Yorkshire county council to submit a tender for the construction of the A57 relief road at Aston.

Mrs. Chalker

I think that the list of six tenderers that have been selected, which includes four firms from the Yorkshire and Humberside areas but not the South Yorkshire county council, will provide plenty of competition. The source for the personnel to be employed is a matter for the successful tenderer.
