HC Deb 18 June 1997 vol 296 c174W
14. Mr. Pickthall

To ask the Prime Minister what are his plans for reducing the number of quangos. [2587]

The Prime Minister

The Government believes that the previous Administration created too many unelected, undemocratic quangos. My right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster has announced a review of quangos with the aim of reducing overall numbers.
