Dr. Wright

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list those of his Department's advisory non-departmental public bodies which(a) the Government are required to consult prior to legislative proposals and (b) the Government are required to publish their response to advice supplied by them.

Mr. Willetts

This Department responds publicly to reports of some NDPBs, such as the Standing Committee on Standards in Public Life and the Government panel on sustainable development. We are not, however, required by statute so to do.
