HC Deb 24 February 1998 vol 307 c204W
Mr. Matthew Taylor

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if the National Audit Office is subject to the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information; and if it will be subject to the proposed Freedom of Information Act. [30467]

Dr. David Clark

The National Audit Office is not within the jurisdiction of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration and is therefore not subject to theCode of Practice on Access to Government Information. The position of the National Audit Office with regard to the proposed FOI Act is still under consideration.
