New Clause 1 - Local authority contracts

Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value) Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 11:00 am on 19th October 2011.

Alert me about debates like this

‘In section 17 of the Local Government Act 1988 (exclusion of non-commercial considerations in the case of local and other public authority contracts), after subsection (10) insert—

“(11) This section does not prevent a public authority to which it applies from exercising any function regulated by this section with reference to a non-commercial matter to the extent that the authority considers it necessary or expedient to do so to enable or facilitate compliance with a duty imposed on it by section 3 of the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2011.”’.—(Mr Hurd.)

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
