§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (l) when he will be announcing the terms of the review of the National Council of Voluntary Organisations by the joint team from his Department and alcohol misuse organisations;
(2) when he expects to complete his consideration of the report of the alcohol misuse organisations.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
Copies of the report, by a team of two officials from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations and two from the Department, on the contribution the Department can most effectively make to future work by national voluntary bodies dealing with alcohol misuse, have been sent to a number of organisations. Comments have been invited by the end of June. The recommendations of the study team will be considered in the light of those comments, and decisions will be made as soon as possible after that date.
