§ Sir J. Gilmour
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to what extent it is the practice of the Glenrothes Development Corporation to ensure that their main building contractors enter into a bond of caution after being awarded a contract by the Corporation.
§ Mr. Ross
It is not the Glenrothes Development Corporation's practice to require its main building contractors to enter into a bond of caution. The Corporation adopts the more usual practice based on the 1954 Regulations and general conditions of contract for building works in Scotland of retaining a percentage of the moneys due to the main contractor for some time after the contract is completed.
