Government wields axe on nearly 200 quangos and plans to merge many others

first_img Show Comments ▼ Government wields axe on nearly 200 quangos and plans to merge many others KCS-content ALMOST 200 quangos face the axe as part of government proposals to save millions of pounds while a further 481 face reform, the Cabinet office revealed yesterday.The closures will lead to thousands of job losses and are likely to create a substantial redundancy bill for the government, although it claimed yesterday in the long run more money would be saved than the redundancies would cost.Cabinet office minister Francis Maude said the government would introduce a Public Bodies bill next month that would see 192 quangos cease to exist with their functions brought back into government. A further 118 public bodies are to be merged down to 57 while 171 face “substantial reform.” The total will be cut from 901 to 648, with the future of 40 bodies still under consideration. The government refused to put a figure on the estimated job losses or potential savings that closing the quangos would result in. Many of the casualties were already expected. Among them were the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) and the Competition Commission, which the government intends to merge into a single competition and market authority early next year. Regional development agencies will also be scrapped with the work they do transferred to local government. Meanwhile, Ofcom is to take over the responsibilities of the Post Office regulator Postcomm, and the Gambling Commission and National Lottery Commission are to be merged. And the Olympic Park Legacy Company, responsible for developing the Olympic site after the 2012 games is to see its powers transferred to the Mayor of London. Maude said: “In many cases, today’s proposals will ensure we preserve the quality of vital services, while allowing them to become more efficient and giving more power to the front line professionals who know those services best.”He added that in recent years there had “been a great tendency for the government just to set up new bodies, so-called arm’s length bodies, often just to avoid ministers having to make difficult decisions and defend them.” Liam Byrne Labour shadow cabinet office spokesman, attacked the proposals saying the cost of closing the quangos would be greater than the savings made. whatsapp Thursday 14 October 2010 9:34 pm Sharecenter_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times whatsapp More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more
