HC Deb 12 November 1987 vol 122 c198W
Mrs. Fyfe

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment which ministerial cars will be exempted from the recently announced decision to put the repair and maintenance of ministerial vehicles out to tender.

Mr. Chope

Some of the vehicles in the Government car service used by Ministers and heads of Department are now being serviced by a commercial garage in order to compare the efficiency and competitiveness of the Government car service's own workshops with services available from the private sector. It is normal practice not to disclose details about particular vehicles used by individual Ministers.
