HC Deb 22 July 1996 vol 282 c84W
Mr. Hutton

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what was the total value of all contracts placed by his Department with Remploy Ltd. in each of the last five years, in 1996 prices. [38345]

Mr. Arbuthnot

The following figures have been extracted from the central contracts database and are based on the financial year from 1 April to 31 March of the years in question. The values have not been converted to a 1996 baseline. It is possible that there may be other contracts placed in recent years by various Defence agencies which are no longer recorded on the central database. Identifying these could be undertaken only at disproportionate cost and it should be noted that as a result of this, a direct comparison from year to year may not show an accurate picture of the pattern of business with the company.

  • 1991–92: £18.7 million
  • 1992–93: £14.2 million
  • 1993–94: £19.9 million
  • 1994–95: £8.4 million
  • 1995–96: £13.5 million.
