Departmental Contracts

Volume 486: debated on Wednesday 14 January 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster with how many faith-based organisations his Department has contracts to provide public services. (244842)

In making contracts for the provision of public services, my Department selects those organisations that meet the proper criteria and have the most relevant expertise and experience to offer. The extent to which such organisations are faith-based is not evident in every case. An accurate total or comprehensive list could therefore be provided only at disproportionate cost.
