Lord Judd

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What progress has been made in establishing the Crown Agents as an independent foundation.

Lord Chesham

Detailed discussions are progressing with Crown Agents Board on the transfer of Crown Agents to an independent foundation. Once these are complete, a paper setting out the proposed arrangements will be made available to both Houses of Parliament. The Government expect the transfer to take place later this year.
