Letter from the Clerk to the Office of
the Deputy Prime Minister |
Further to the appearance of your team before the
Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee on Wednesday
30 October, I am writing to ask for further information on points
raised by Members of the Committee during the evidence session.
The Committee asked to see the minutes of a meeting
between the then Minister, Ms Sally Keeble MP, and representatives
of small businesses.
The Committee was keen that the Department should
again contact the Court Service to see if an answer of any greater
precision could be given to the question of how many applications
to contract-out failed; and for what reasons.
