HC Deb 20 July 1987 vol 120 c30W
20. Mr. Campbell-Savours

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he next intends to meet the chairman of British Rail to discuss procurement policy.

Mr. David Mitchell

As the hon. Gentleman is aware, the British Railways Board's chosen policy is for competitive procurement. This has been accepted by Ministers. The implementation of this is a matter for the board.
