CCT RULES SCRUTINY EXTENDED

A final decision on whether to push ahead with changes to the white-collar CCT regime are unlikely to emerge before the end of the month.

Councils had feared that environment minister Sir Paul Beresford would make a snap decision to toughen up the CCT regime after private contractors complained of anti- competitive behaviour. The DoE then called on 80 councils to explain why they had awarded contracts in-house.

But the scrutiny of the regime has been extended.

'We are taking a thorough look at all the options,' said a DoE spokeswomen.

Sources close to the DoE said the regulations governing all white-collar services, including finance and legal, were being examined.

An announcement was unlikely before the end of the month, they said, and might not be made until March.
