Social value bill passes critical debate in Commons
The UK’s first social value bill is one important step closer to becoming law.
The Public Services (Social Enterprise and Social Value) private member's bill, introduced by Conservative MP Chris White, will now go to the committee stage for more debate.
If it becomes law it will require all commissioners of public services to consider taking into account economic, social and environmental value, not just price, when buying goods and services.
