I completely agree.
But considering Ieuan's desire to see local companies getting a fair bite of the procurement cherry...
- ...why was the construction of WAG's Llandudno Office for instance awarded to a non-local company?
- ...and why have local Welsh construction firms been excluded from tendering on numerous North Wales school building projects?
Don't do as I do. Do as I say.
Incidentally, by way of comparison, the Coalition Government has introduced measures which would ensure that SMEs get at least 25% of government contracts. I would like to see WAG introduce similar procurement rules here in Wales.
