HC Deb 19 February 1996 vol 272 c41W
27. Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what representations he has made to secure a greater share of defence procurement work for Wales. [14184]

Mr. Gwilym Jones

Government procurement policy rests on the principle of securing value for money, primarily through competition. The capabilities of UK industry—including, where appropriate, companies in Wales—are fully considered in all defence procurement decisions.
