Departmental NDPBs

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many people were serving on the boards of the non-departmental public bodies which his Department sponsors at the latest date for which figures are available. (203600)

The Cabinet Office publication “Public bodies 2007” lists the number of people serving on the boards of public bodies as at 31 March 2007, the latest date for which figures are available. These figures are broken down by individual Departments. “Public bodies 2007” can be downloaded from www.civilservice.gov.uk/about/public/bodies.asp Copies are also available in the Library of the House. The Department was created in June 2007; the figures in “Public Bodies 2007” relate to the former Department for Education and Skills (DfES). The names of the NDPBs for which my Department is now responsible are listed on my Department’s website at: http://www.dfes.gov.uk/ndpb/ The DfES’s “Public Bodies 2007” is also on this website page.
