Parliamentary Ombudsman

Volume 685: debated on Monday 9 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

On how many occasions, on what dates and on what issues the findings of an investigation by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration have been rejected by Ministers.[HL7286]

Individual departments are responsible for taking forward the Parliamentary Ombudsman's recommendations.

In response to Parliamentary Questions from the noble Lord, Lord Lester, earlier this year departments have provided details on the occasions when they have not accepted the Parliamentary Ombudsman's recommendations. However, for ease of reference I have written to the noble Lord providing him with the information provided by departments. A copy of this letter has been placed in the Library for the reference of noble Lords.
