HC Deb 05 November 1993 vol 231 c502W
Mr. Michael Spicer

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list for each of the last 10 years the number of people employed by agencies set up over the last 10 years to replace civil service functions.

Mr. Waldegrave

Executive agencies set up as part of the next steps initiative remain part of the civil service, and staff working in them continue to be civil servants.
