Courts: Debt Collection

Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN HL2745, tabled on 19 October 2015

To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Statement by Lord Faulks on 15 October (HLWS229), how much they have spent to date on the process for procurement of a new criminal court compliance and enforcement services provider; and how much will now be written off.

Answered on

6 November 2015

As the Minister for Courts told the House on 15 October 2015, we took the decision not to outsource HMCTS compliance and enforcement services to a single supplier because of the need to ensure that any contract we let provided the best value for the taxpayer.

The total cost of the Compliance and Enforcement Service Project as of end of September 2015 was £8,723,645.
