HC Deb 21 June 1993 vol 227 c42W
Ms Mowlam

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list all the market tests that have taken place in his Department since November 1992 and indicate, in each case, whether the result was the maintenance of in-house provision, or whether the service was contracted out.

Mr. Lang

No market tests involving in-house bids have been completed since November 1992. Work is continuing on the market tests in my 1992–93 programme and I expect to make an announcement on the results of the programme later in the year.
