The following non-departmental public bodies, sponsored by my Department, have a GB or UK-wide remit:

  • Advisory Committee on Business Appointments
  • Advisory Committee on Advertising
  • Agriculture and Environment Biotechnology Commission
  • Better Regulation Task Force
  • Civil Service Appeal Board
  • Committee on Standards in Public Life
  • House of Lords Appointments Commission
  • Political Honours Scrutiny Committee
  • Security Commission
  • Security Vetting Appeals Panel
  • Senior Salaries Review Body
  • Sustainable Development Commission

The remaining information is not held centrally in the form requested; but general information on expenditure, staffing board members and levels of remuneration is published annually in the Cabinet Office publication "Public Bodies". Copies of "Public Bodies 1999" have been placed in the Libraries of the House; and "Public Bodies 2000" is due to be published next month. Information on board membership and remuneration is also available from the Cabinet Office Public Appointments Directory website (www.cabinet-office.gov.uk).
