HC Deb 11 January 1993 vol 216 cc518-25W
230. Mr. Simon Hughes

To ask the Secretary of state for Transport if he will list for each of the last 10 years major construction contracts awarded by his Department worth over £250,000 at current prices, indicating in each case which construction company was awarded the contract; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

I regret that the full information requested could be provided only at disproportionate cost. However, the following information shows, for each of the last five years, all new road construction contracts with award (cash) prices of £250,000 or more.
