Q

Does the national Compact apply in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland?

A

The national Compact only applies in England, however, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have their own agreements, which are listed here.

Q

I have heard that there have been four cases where local authorities have been taken to judicial review for breaches of the Compact. Is this true?

A

The short answer is that a Compact breach has not directly led to a judicial review but the Compact has been referenced in judicial review proceeding and judgements.
Q

Should the private sector be included in local Compacts?

A

Here at Compact Voice we are often asked if the private sector should be included in private sector contracts, and here we answer as best we can.
