§ Dr. Julian Lewis
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment, pursuant to his answer to the hon. Member for Cannock Chase (Dr. Wright), of 8 March 1999,Official Report, column 71, about non-departmental public bodies, for what reasons the 198W Qualifications and Curriculum Authority declined to make its minutes available to a member of the public on 9 March. 
§ Mr. Mudie
My answer did not differentiate between bodies which publish or make available to the public minutes of meetings and those that publish or make available summary reports of meetings. The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority declined to make available the minutes of its meetings when asked, as it does not publish these. The Authority does, however, publish summary reports of its meetings, as outlined in my pursuant reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Cannock Chase (Dr. Wright), 17 March 1999,Official Report, column 691.
