My noble Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Lord Freud, has made the following written statement:

Today, I will publish the outcome of the review of the Social Security Advisory Committee (SSAC). I am pleased to announce that the Government support the continuation of the committee in its current form. The Department for Work and Pensions has completed a robust examination of the committee’s functions, delivery arrangements and governance structure. The review was carried out in line with the Cabinet Office’s key principles for reviews of non-departmental public bodies (NDPB). The SSAC is a cost-effective advisory NDPB whose functions are integral to improving the quality of policy making and of secondary legislation in the Department for Work and Pensions. I attach a copy of the review report to this statement and will place a copy in the Library of the House.
