To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, (a) What is the combined cost of the 11 largest contracts for the supply of Personal Protective Coveralls, (b) what is the total number of Personal Protective Coveralls procured under each contract, and (c) what is the unit price per Personal Protective Coverall by each supplier of the largest 11 contracts; and if he will make a statement.
Three hundred and seventy contracts have been awarded by the Department for the supply of all types of personal protective equipment (PPE). The published Contract Award Notices contain details on the different types of PPE ordered against each contract, information which is not collated centrally prior to publication. Purchase orders have been raised against these contracts for over 29 million coveralls which are in the process of being delivered to the United Kingdom or have already arrived and are then quality checked at our UK warehouses before being distributed to the frontline.
Information on the unit price of PPE ordered under each contract is considered commercially confidential.
