HL Deb 29 November 1990 vol 523 c50WA
Lord Brougham and Vaux

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they expect to announce the outcome of the sale competition for the Crown Suppliers' vehicle hire business and the inter-departmental despatch service.

Baroness Blatch

Discussions are continuing on the sale of the Crown Suppliers' vehicle hire and maintenance business. An announcement will be made as soon as possible. There are no acceptable bids for the inter-departmental despatch service, which will, therefore, be retained in Government.
