Parliamentary questions
30 June 2017
E-004396-17
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Neena Gill (S&D)

 Subject:  Implementation of fire safety stipulations under EU public procurement directives in the UK
 Answer(s) 

Every year, over 250 000 public authorities in the EU spend around 14% of GDP on average on the purchase of services, works and supplies. In sectors such as energy, transport, waste management, social protection and the provision of health or education services, public authorities are the principal buyers.

Following the 14 June Grenfell fire tragedy, which made clear the importance of strong EU regulations on fire safety in the construction sector, could the Commission outline the state of play on implementation by the UK Government of fire safety stipulations under EU public procurement directives?
