HC Deb 16 December 1982 vol 34 c232W
Mr. Eggar

asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will list those functions or parts of his Department which he has transferred, or is in the process of transferring, to the private sector.

Mr. Hayhoe

No major functions of the Management and Personnel Office, formerly part of the Civil Service Department, have been privatised or contracted out and the role of the Department is such that any large scale transfer to the private sector is unlikely. However, outside people and consultants are employed to supplement the work of staff on executive programmes and in some central policy areas of the Department. This practice of contracting out parts of individual tasks will continue where suitable outside facilities and resources exist.
