To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what instructions he has issued to the non-departmental public bodies in Wales with respect to the supply of cars, either under executive car leasing schemes or by direct provision for chairmen, deputy chairmen and chief executives; if he will list for each quango which of the (a) chairmen, (b) deputy chairmen and (c) chief executives have an officially provided car; and under what type of scheme. [37817]

Non-departmental public bodies in Wales were reminded in spring 1994 of the conditions for the provision of cars. The fundamental principle is that a car should be made available to a member of staff or of the board only where this is the most cost-effective means of transport for official journeys. NDPBs' attention has also been drawn to guidance on various aspects of car provision produced by Her Majesty's Treasury's central unit on purchasing. Information on the provision to individuals within NDPBs' approved car schemes is not held centrally.
