Eurostar: Cleaning Services

Volume 498: debated on Thursday 29 October 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport (1) when the Eurostar Carlisle Cleaning Group contract is to be renewed; (295905)

(2) what payments have been made by Eurostar to Carlisle Group in the last five years; and what payments are expected to be made in the next three years.

The Department for Transport is not a party to the contract between Carlisle and Eurostar. However, details of the contract are publicly available from the Official Journal of the EU (218/2008). This indicates that a six-year contract was awarded on 2 October 2008 with a value of £14 million. The document is on the internet at the following address:

In relation to payments made prior to that date, as the Department is not party to these contracts it has no information regarding their value.
