answer text <p>Wherever possible the Attorney General’s Office and the Law Officers Departments (the Crown Prosecution Service, the Serious Fraud Office, The Government Legal Department and HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate) let contracts over £10,000 using call-off contracts from frameworks procured by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS). These frameworks include provision for payments to sub-contractors within 30 days of receipt of undisputed invoice.</p><p>Central records are not held for procurements partially, or fully, managed outside the procurement service. To confirm that these contracts include provisions for prompt payment of sub-contractor invoices would require a manual check of all procurement records, which would incur a disproportionate cost.</p> more like this

answer text <p>No such assessment has been made to date. This is because rights holders tend to use collective management organisation (CMOs) to collect and distribute royalties earned in other EU countries. UK and EU CMOs enter into reciprocal agreements with each other to do this. These are private commercial agreements between the parties which we would expect to continue after the UK has exited the Digital Single Market.</p> more like this
