HC Deb 09 March 1993 vol 220 c497W
Mr. McAllion

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will list all those services or functions that have been contracted out from his Department since November 1991 without market testing an in-house bid against external competition, with, in each instance the successful contractor and the reasons for the decision to exclude an in-house bid.

Mr. Eggar

Detailed information on the conduct and award of individual contracts is not held centrally by my Department and collection of this information would incur disproportionate costs.
