To ask the Secretary of State for Employment on how many occasions the hotel owned by a Stockport TEC director has been used by the Stockport TEC for training or other purposes, for which that director's hotel has received payment; how much was paid; and when and how many of these hotel bookings were the subject of competitive tenders. 
§ Mr. Paice
I understand from Stockport and High Peak training and enterprise council that one of their directors owns a hotel which has been used by the TEC. The occasions on which the hotel has been used by the TEC since its inception in 1991 are shown in the following table:

The TEC uses a wide range of venues throughout its area and does not normally use competitive tendering for these bookings. However, in cases of significant 32W confidence. No analysis is kept by gender. The remaining information requested is in the following table, which relates 1994.
expenditure the TEC will seek out comparative prices. TECs are required to comply with published guidelines on the business interest of directors.
