§ Mrs. Beckett
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security whether he will publish details of the surveys carried out prior to the publication of the report which proposed agency status for much of his Department.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
There were no surveys carried out specifically in relation to the production of the agency study report. The study team which produced the report did, however, draw on existing survey material and numerous other sources. The methodology of the team is listed in annex B of the report which is available in the Library.
