Forensic Science Service

Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 17 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps she is taking to re-organise the Government’s Forensic Service. (157533)

The Forensic Science Service was an Executive agency of the Home Office until December 2005 when it was vested as a Government-owned limited company (GovCo). In accordance with commitments given to Parliament in March 2006, I am currently considering whether there should be a further change of status, and if so, what that status should be. I hope to be in a position to make an in principle decision by the end of the year.
