HC Deb 16 December 1982 vol 34 c220W
Mr. Eggar

asked the Secretary of State for Wales 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. Nicholas Edwards

Since May 1979 no functions have been transferred on a permanent basis to the private sector. Some work on appeals against departmental decisions on sound insulation grants has been transferred on an ad hoc basis.
