§ Mr. McAllion
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment which contracts let by his Department or agencies have been awarded to Burns International in the last year.
§ Miss Widdecombe
None at present, though it is the intention of the Employment service to award three contracts to Burns International from 3 April 1995.
Burns International was also used three times on a casual basis by the Health and Safety Executive's estates management contractor to guard scaffolding overnight whilst renovations were carried out to the HSE area office in Edinburgh. That work finished in June 1994.
