To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what information on Army training schedules is normally provided to private catering firms that have won Army contracts.

Catering firms that win Army contracts are given the information necessary to enable the company to provide the required service. Such information is given in the contract document. Contracts with firms providing catering facilities to summer camps have hitherto included the location and dates of the particular event, and the name of the unit attending camp. Instructions have been given that in future the name of the unit should not appear in the contract.
