HL Deb 07 December 1994 vol 559 c89WA
Lord Harris of Greenwich

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which recommendations of the Salmon Commission on standards in public life have been implemented and which have not.

Baroness Blatch

Of the 29 recommendations identified as requiring action by central and local government, 19 are known to have been implemented, fully or in part, although not necessarily in direct response to the Salmon report. They are recommendations 4, 6, 8, 11–14, 16–21, 24–25, 27 and 33–35. Recommendations 1–3, 7, 9 and 10 have not been implemented. Information about the status of recommendations 31, 32 and 26 is not yet available. The organisation which was the subject of recommendation 26 has now been abolished. Of the remaining nine recommendations, six required no action and three were addressed to national political parties. I shall write to the noble Lord with further details of implementation, or the reasons for not implementing the recommendations, as soon as the information is complete.
