Engineering: Construction

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 9 March 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills what estimate he has made of the number of UK engineering construction firms which have secured contracts for work in other EU member states in each of the last five years. (320921)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 12 October 2009, Official Report, column 613W. Information relating to the securing of individual contracts in a particular sector, including engineering construction, is not collated by Government. The awarding of engineering construction contracts is a business matter for the parties concerned, and the various award criteria are commercial issues for the private sector clients involved.
