Holding answer received on 29 June 2020

The award of this contract to PestFix (which is a trading name of Crisp Websites Limited) is the subject of a Judicial Review which has been brought against the Department. The Department is taking legal advice and considering its response. In these circumstances it would be inappropriate to respond to the issues and points raised in this question as this might prejudice the Department’s legal position.
