HL Deb 21 July 1997 vol 581 c137WA
Lord Chesham

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Lord McIntosh of Haringey on 7 July (WA 51), whether the statement that the costs of a review are to be "met from within planned departmental running costs" means that civil servants have been taken off their normal duties in order to conduct the review.

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

The work of civil servants changes to meet the priorities of Ministers.
