describe the various sub-contracting options available in the UK and Ireland??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.16.56.210 (talk) 13:15, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

This article is slightly confusing saying that domestic and named subcontractors are the same thing. The book "Which Contract?" (Fourth Edition Hugh Clamp, Stanley Cox and Sarah Lupton) reads: "In some cases the client will select some of the sub-contractors to be engaged by the contractor (variously referred to as named, nominated, or pre-selected). " This seems to imply that nominated and named are the same thing. However this wikipedia article is suggesting that domestic and named are the same thing. My understanding is that Domestic and Nominated subcontractors are under mutually exclusive contract relationships with either the client or main contractor. Should the article be corrected? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.105.189.2 (talk) 20:16, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
