HC Deb 04 May 2000 vol 349 cc210-1W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office in how many cases the recommendations of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration were not implemented by the relevant Government Departments in each of the last five years. [120346]

Marjorie Mowlam

The Government normally accept, and implement, the Parliamentary Ombudsman's recommendations in full. I am not aware of any cases over the past five years where a recommendation made by the Ombudsman has not been implemented by the Department concerned.
