The leisure management industry is calling on the government to reform the competition legislation to give quality issues more prominence.

The Institute of Leisure and Amenity Management has published a discussion paper following a series of high- profile cases where companies with local authority contracts have collapsed, leaving the service in disarray.

Last month's CCT and quality - issues and guidelines argues that quality should be considered earlier in the tendering process than currently required.

It also urges the government to drop the requirement for councils to invite a certain number of tenders. This would reduce costs by early elimination of unsuitable contractors.

'The whole thrust of the paper is trying to encourage people to look at quality at an earlier stage of the process and so try to avoid the problems that have arisen in the past,' said ILAM assistant manager Jonathan Ives.
