Lord Elton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What plans they have to privatise parts of the Home Department over the next year.

The Minister of State, Home Office (Earl Ferrers)

My right honourable friend the Home Secretary has given approval for advisers to be engaged in preparation for the privatisation of DTELS (formerly the Directorate of Telecommunications). The aim is to privatise during 1993/94 by means of a trade sale.
