Mr Major’s Written Parliamentary Answer on Goods and Services (Payment) – 21 March 1986

Below is the text of Mr Major’s written Parliamentary Answer on Goods and Services (Payment) on 21st March 1986.

Mr. Ottaway Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the average time it takes his Department to pay suppliers of goods and services to his Department.

Mr. Major Payments to suppliers are not centralised, but may be made from any of the local, regional or central offices of the Department. No figures are therefore available for an average time for payment across the Department as a whole.
