§ Mr. Baldry
We have already announced a detailed programme for extension of CCT to local authorities' professional and corporate services, to housing management, and to three further blue-collar services. I would encourage authorities to open up their services to competition wherever possible, and I am gratified to see that an increasing number of authorities are voluntarily subjecting a wide range of services to competitive tendering, ahead of the statutory timetable.
