Departmental Procurement

Volume 480: debated on Thursday 16 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what proportion of invoices for goods and services procured from small- and medium-sized businesses was paid within 30 days of receipt by (a) her Department and (b) the agencies for which her Department is responsible in 2007-08; and if she will make a statement. (226500)

Unfortunately this information is not available. The Department for Communities and Local Government measures the proportion of invoices for goods and services which were paid within 30 days but does not separately identify invoices from small and medium-sized businesses.
