§ Mr. McNamara
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list those parts of his Department or departmental agencies which were privatised without an in-house bid; if he will indicate the expertise that was absent in his Department or departmental agencies which prevented an in-house bid taking place; which future parts of his Department or departmental agencies he intends to privatise; and which of them do not have the necessary in-house expertise to mount an in-house bid.
