HC Deb 21 January 1986 vol 90 c129W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services in how many hospitals laundering requirements have been put out to competitive tender; in how many hospitals laundering is currently undertaken by a commercial company; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hayhoe

This information is not collected centrally in the form requested but I understand that up to the end of September 1985 a total of 58 laundry tendering exercises had been completed and 18 of these had resulted in contracts being awarded to commercial companies.
