§ Mr. Ron Davies
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will review his policy in respect of the catering arrangements at Caerphilly castle in the light of the Monopolies and Mergers Commission report in respect of monopoly services at exhibition halls.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
The document to which I believe the hon. Gentleman refers, the Monopolies and Mergers Commission report on electrical contracting at exhibition halls in London, concerns the monopoly that existed in favour of restricted practices by electrical contractors tied to the major exhibition halls.
The current catering contract at Caerphilly castle was awarded through open tender for a limited term up to 22 March 1991. Terms of a replacement contract are currently under review.
