Quotes

"I am setting up a group now to look at what is required and do analysis on it [the report] to see if the three options are fit for purpose. That’s why we are going back; to see how they arrived at the decision."
The Teckal Srl v Commune di Viano case (1999) established that, under certain circumstances, "a contract let to a third party will not count as a public serviceservice contract if “the local authority exercises over the person concerned a control which is similar to that which it exercises over its own departments and, at the same time, that person carries out the essential part of its activities with the controlling local authority or authorities”."
Commenting on the final results, Mr Newman said: "2013 has seen a significant improvement in the trading performance of the Group, which has maintained its market leading position."
Mr Lisney said that there have been calls for the PRN system to be changed. "Despite these calls, I have not had any firm economic proposals sent to the ACP to consider. We have to remember that if we didn't have the PRN system then we would have to have something else instead. Looking at other countries' methods and costs of compliance we would have to have a very strong argument to even consider any fundamental changes."
