Philip Davies – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department of Health

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Philip Davies on 2015-11-04.

To ask the Secretary of State for Health, pursuant to the Answer of 22 October 2015 to Question 11792, which grants made under section 64 of the Health Services and Public Health Act 1964 are awarded on a non-competed basis; and if he will ensure that all future section 64 grants are awarded on a competed basis.

Alistair Burt

Providing the requested information would involve analysis of each grant awarded and would therefore be at disproportionate cost. There is a range of different circumstances where it would not be appropriate or value for money to run a competed scheme.
