§ Mr. Kilfoyle
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage if he will list the advisory non-departmental public bodies sponsored by his Department which have a statutory basis.
§ Mr. Sproat
None of the advisory bodies sponsored by my Department has a statutory basis. However, some of the executive bodies which are established by statute do have an advisory role. Examples are the British Tourist Authority, set up under the Development of Tourism Act 1969, and English Heritage, set up under the National Heritage Act 1983.
