HC Deb 09 June 1995 vol 261 c353W
Mr. McGrady

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list the firms that were allowed to tender for contracts in spite of non-compliance with the rules of enforcement as laid down in the Fair Employment (Northern Ireland) Act 1989.

Mr. Ancram

With one exception, all the concerns which have been prosecuted for non-compliance with the fair employment legislation subsequently fulfilled their statutory obligations. It was therefore not necessary to debar them from tendering for contracts. The remaining concern was issued with a disqualification notice on 21 October 1991 which was cancelled on 25 November 1991 following submission to the Fair Employment Commission of a properly completed monitoring return.
