To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will list all those services or functions contracted out in his Department and agencies, since November 1991, in which the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 1988 were not applied.

The Department currently contracts out a large proportion of its services and functions. To list them all would involve disproportionate cost. The application of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 1981 depends upon the facts of each case. The regulations have not been treated as applying to any of the activities contracted out since November 1991.
