The councils against which statutory action has been taken relating to anti competitive behaviour and financial failure in the fourth quarter of 1993 were listed in a table today by DoE Minister Tony Baldry.

Cumulative figures were also given for the number of notices and directions given under the local government Act 1988 and the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980 for 1993 as a whole; and since 1989 when the anti competitive provisions were brought in.

In the fourth quarter - 1 October to 31 December 1993 - anti competitive notices were served on three councils: Calderdale MBC for grounds maintenance; Harrow LBC for other catering; and Langbaurgh on Tees BC for grounds maintenance. The 1993 total was 20 councils, and the total since January 1989 57 councils.

There were no notices served relating to financial failure in the fourth quarter of 1993, though the total for the year was 80, and the total since 1989 was 88 councils.

Three directions relating to anti competitive behaviour were issued in the first quarter: to Birmingham City Council for building maintenance; Bradford City Council for highways and sewers; and Warrington BC for grounds maintenance. The year total was 12 and the total since 1989 was 30 councils.

There were seven directions issued relating to financial failures in the first quarter.

These were to Bedfordshire CC for grounds maintenance; Camden LBC for building maintenance; Canterbury City for new construction; Castle Point BC for grounds maintenance; Hillingdon LBC for other catering; Manchester City for new construction; and South Bedfordshire DC for refuse collection.

The year total was 16 and the total since 1989 was 48.
