§ Sir Philip Holland
asked the Secretary of State for Employment (1) if he will list in the Official Report the non-departmental public bodies for which he is responsible and which have been abolished, or whose abolition has been announced, since the publication of "Public Bodies 1983";
(2) if he will list in the Official Report the non-departmental public bodies for which he is responsible that have been introduced or announced too late to be included in the list published in "Public Bodies 1983".
§ Mr. Tom King
There have been two changes to the list of Department of Employment group non-departmental public bodies given on pages 15 to 18 of "Public Bodies 1983" but the overall total remains unaltered. The decision to abolish the careers service advisory council for England was announced on 30 November 1983. One new advisory body, the national steering group for local collaborative projects under the adult training strategy, was set up by the Manpower Services Commission on 2 March 1984.
