The secretary of state for Wales has proposed giving local authorities an additional six months for the reintroduction of compulsory competitive tendering.

In a written commons answer yesterday, Welsh office minister Gwilym Jones said that the secretary of state had given very careful consideration to the timetable for the reintroduction of compulsory competitive tendering for work subject to the provisions of the Local Government Planning and Land Act 1980.

'We have consulted on the regulations which provide for the reintroduction of compulsory competitive tendering and, separately, have received representations that a number of local authorities are continuing to have operational difficulties in complying with the timetable which was announced in June 1995.

'My rt. hon friend has concluded that authorities should be given an additional six months for the reintroduction of compulsory competitive tendering for this work, ie to 1 October 1997. Welsh office officials have written today to local authorities and other interested parties seeking comments on this proposal.'

'An announcement on the way in which compulsory competitive tendering will be extended to professional services and housing management will be made shortly.'
