Home Office: Reorganisation

Volume 689: debated on Tuesday 6 February 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will issue a Green Paper on the proposed reorganisation and splitting of the Home Office, and allow for a period of public debate and consultation and the issuing of a White Paper before any Bill to implement such reorganisation is presented to Parliament. [HL1648]

Questions of changes to the machinery of government are decided by the Prime Minister. I refer the noble Lord to the Answer given by the Prime Minister in another place on Wednesday 24 January:

“There are proposals that the Home Secretary has made, and we will make an announcement on those in the next few weeks”.
