Quangos (again)

Last week the Public Administration Select Committee published a hard-hitting, extremely blunt, report criticising the way in which the Government’s (non) bonfire of the quangos has been conducted. Well worth a read – one of the most intriguing suggestions was that many quangos should be turned into executive agencies, which for those of us who have studied these things is a very interesting suggestion. (see my two books on the quangos and agencies here and on agencies here.

My own written contribution appears in the report here, and there’s oral evidence and several references to my two-pence worth in the body of the report..
