Government Auctions

Volume 456: debated on Thursday 1 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport where his Department publishes information about Government auctions (a) which it arranges and (b) to which it contributes in (i) Blackpool, (ii) Lancashire and (iii) the North West; and when the next such auction will take place in each area. (117427)

The Driver Vehicle and Licensing Agency and the Highways Agency—both Executive Agencies of the Department for Transport, undertake auctions. These are publicised via various means including, but not limited to, the National Press, selected motoring press, auction catalogues and via direct marketing to customers who have asked to receive them. There is no specific regional promotional activity undertaken.

There are no auctions planned for Blackpool or in other towns in Lancashire. Auctions have taken place in, and are planned for other towns in the North West.
