To ask the Attorney-General

(1) what proportion of the total value of contracts issued or to be issued by the Law Officers' Departments in 2011-12 have required successful organisations to put up a capital bond; and if he will make a statement;

(2) which contracts the Law Officers' Departments have tendered or will tender in 2011-12 which require successful organisations to have a capital bond of more than £5 million; which contracts have not required such a bond; and if he will make a statement.

No contracts issued or to be issued by the Law Officers' Departments in 2011-12 have required successful organisations to put up a capital bond.

It is not possible to provide details of all the tenders and contracts awarded by the Law Officers' Departments without incurring a disproportionate cost, but the majority of contracts involving a value of £10,000 or over are routinely published on the Government's Business Link website in line with Cabinet Office requirements.
