HC Deb 18 February 1987 vol 110 cc636-7W
Mr. Tim Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the contracts, with the subject of the assignment, awarded to management consultancy or accounting firms by his Department in 1986, with the name of the consultants concerned.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

The following centrally managed contracts were awarded in 1986 to management consultants or accounting firms:

Name and assignment


Ernst &Whinney
To advise and assist in the development of computer auditing 79,920
Mr. D. Towell
In-service training and staff development 3,320
Coopers and Lybrand
Feasibility study of the housing of the visual arts in Wales 49,330

It is not possible to identify, without disproportionate costs, a list of contracts awarded to management consultants or accounting firms in respect of projects not centrally managed.
