The cull of Quangos

Thanks to Tamsila and Jackie at BVSC for this item.

The Daily Telegraph (and I can hear DT journos rubbing their hands with glee even from here) has a full list of all the quangos being culled (an astonishing 177), those being merged (129 down to 57), those being privatised (4) and those still under review (94).

I can’t believe anyone — other than perhaps some MPs — will shed a tear at the abolition of the Government Hospitality Advisory Committee on the Purchase of Wines (maybe it should be merged with another regulator — OffLicense?), but note that the list does confirm that Capacitybuilders and the Commissioner for the Compact are going.
