    I usually buy these from (can't remember if we're allowed to name suppliers) 'a Northern county' Purchasing Organisation but they apparently don't anymore.
    They used to be around £9 for a box of 100 incl VAT but I'm only seeing them for around £64 now.
    Any idea what's going on?
    And are there any safe alternatives. Blue nitrile are still in stock but I'm presuming specs are different.
    Going to ask CLEAPSS too

    OK, in a way it's a good thing this happened. Turns out we've been using gloves when there is no recommendation to do so.
    CLEAPSS reminded me to read the relevant document and I also did a quick search of the latest hazcards for 'gloves'.
    Think the only practical we now need them for is 'gakistuff' i.e. slime
