Committee on Radioactive Waste Management

Volume 591: debated on Tuesday 27 January 2015

My noble Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change (Baroness Verma) has made the following written ministerial statement today.

Triennial reviews are part of the Government’s commitment to ensuring that non-departmental public bodies continue to have regular independent challenge.

The review will examine whether there is a continuing need for CoRWM’s function and its form and whether it should continue to exist at arm’s length from Government.

If there is evidence of a continued need for the body, the review will also examine whether CoRWM’s control and governance arrangements continue to meet the recognised principles of good corporate governance.

I will inform the House of the outcome of the review when it is completed.
