To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) if he will establish an inquiry into the decision by North Staffordshire district health authority to award a domestic contract at the new Bradwell hospital, Newcastle under Lyme, to ISC Initial, following agreement that Initial could correct various omissions and mistakes in its tender after the closing date for tenders;(2) if he will establish an inquiry into the awarding of a domesic contract at the new Bradwell hospital, Newcastle under Lyme, to ISC Initial, in relation to observance by the authority of paragraph 11ยท1 of its conditions of tender;(3) if he will establish an inquiry into the awarding of a domestic contract at the new Bradwell hospital, Newcastle under Lyme, to ISC Initial, in relation to the authority's observance of paragraphs 2.2, 6.2 and 8.5 of its conditions of tender.

I understand that both tenders for this contract were given the opportunity to clarify their documentations after the closing date for tenders. However the award of contracts is a matter for health authorities and the hon. Member may therefore wish to to write to the chairman of the North Staffordshire district health authority for further detailed information.
