§ Lord Lea of Crondall
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the Retail Prices Index Advisory Committee has been abolished. [HL2811]
§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey:
The Retail Prices Index Advisory Committee has never been a standing committee; it was a group convened from time to time under previous administrations to make recommendations to the Chancellor on proposed changes to the construction of the RPI.
