HC Deb 09 November 1987 vol 122 c74W
25. Mr. Redwood

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what have been the effects of fee competition for costs of design and supervision of roads.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

On average there has been a 25 per cent. reduction on the standard fee rates previously applying. This should mean that we will save about 15 per cent. on the total preparation and supervision costs for projects allocated through competitive tendering.
