HC Deb 24 June 1991 vol 193 c400W
Mr. Gregory

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list his responsibilities in respect of the insolvency service.

Mr. Redwood

The insolvency service is an executive agency within my Department. Its day-to-day management has been delegated under the terms of its framework document to its inspector general and chief executive. He is accountable to and reports to me on its performance. I remain answerable for the policy governing the service's work generally and determine the policy framework within which it operates.

A copy of the agency framework document is available in the House Library.
