Questions referred

1.

Is the correct application of Article 4 of Directive 2004/18/EC (1) of 31 March 2004 impeded by the provisions of national law laid down in Article 36(5) of Legislative Decree No 163 of 12 April 2006, as amended by Legislative Decree No 113 of 31 July 2007, under which:

where a member of a consortium participates in a tendering procedure for a public contract, the consortium itself is automatically excluded from participation solely on the ground that it has a particular legal form (that of a permanent consortium) rather than another, essentially identical, legal form (that of a grouping of producers' and workers' cooperatives or a grouping of artisan/handicraft businesses); and

where a permanent consortium participates in a tendering procedure for a public contract, and where it has declared that it is competing on behalf of other companies and that it will entrust the works to other companies if it is awarded the contract, a company is automatically excluded from participation solely on the formal ground that it is a member of that consortium?
