HC Deb 08 May 2002 vol 385 cc172-3W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills which of the services of her Department have not been reviewed under the Better Quality Services Initiative; and when they will be reviewed. [50320]

Mr. Ivan Lewis

The review of the Department's activities and services under the Better Quality Service Programme started in 1999 and is reflected in its Spending Review 2000 Service Delivery Agreement, which requires all its activities t be reviewed by 2004. We are on course to meet this target: progress is reported in the Department's Annual Report. There are four more Quinquennial reviews of the Department's Non-Departmental Public Bodies to be carried out in the next two years.
