Scottish office minister George Kynoch has announced that compulsory competitive tendering for building and roads work for Scottish local authorities would be phased in between April 1 and July 1, 1997.

This follows a period of consultation on various options for the reintroduction of CCT.

Mr Kynoch also announced that CCT would not be applied to roads winter maintenance work, and to the small jobs that winter maintenance teams carry out during the summer.

This was in response to representations by authorities. He also announced various other minor changes to the CCT regime, including regulations to increase the transparency of local authority decisions during the remainder of the moratorium.

Mr Kynoch said: 'After carefully considering the many responses to our consultation paper on this subject, from local authorities and from the private sector, I have decided to confirm our earlier view that CCT in this area should restart following the moratorium on July 1, 1997, except for those very small jobs, under 25,000, where I think it is reasonable for authorities to restart CCT on 1 April.
