HC Deb 17 June 1993 vol 226 c683W
Dr. Moonie

To ask the Prime Minister to which Cabinet Minister the Teaching Company management committee reports.

The Prime Minister

[holding answer 16 June 1993]: The Teaching Company management committee is a subcommittee of the Science and Engineering Research Council—SERC—and, therefore, formally reports to my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. However, the terms of reference of this committee require it, inter alia, to report to the engineering board of SERC and to the Department of Trade and Industry, as well as to other funding bodies, and to advise SERC's engineering board, the DTI and others on the development of the scheme.
