In a reserved judgment, the court of appeal allowed the appeal of one private sector building contractor while dismissing two others who had sought judicial review of a decsion by Portsmouth City Council to award housing maintenance contracts to its own direct labour organisation.

The Times (Law Report, p35) reports that if a council failed to state in the tender invitations the criteria to be used for the award of the contracts, it breached its obligations.

However, if a council decided to use its own DSO it was not entering into a public works contract within the European Works Directive and was entitled so to grant the work.
