HL Deb 25 June 2002 vol 636 cc129-30WA
Baroness Serota

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the current membership of each Cabinet committee. [HL4897]

Lord Macdonald of Tradeston

The Prime Minister has revised the composition of Cabinet committees in the light of the recent machinery of government changes, and has also established three new committees: a sub-committee, CJS(IT), on information technology In the criminal justice system; MISC20 on social and economic aspects of migration; and MISC21 on the Government's response to parliamentary modernisation. MISC16, having fulfilled its specific remit to review the practice on tackling illegal working and policy on managed migration, has been wound up. These issues will now be taken forward by MISC20. The full list of committees, their terms of reference and their membership has been placed in the Library of the House and will shortly be available on the Cabinet Office website (www.cabinet-office.gov.uk).
