The changes meant a considerable reduction in the size of the House. By contrast with the 685 now listed (the majority
of whom are life peers), the last edition of this Guide published before the reforms stated that in February 1999 there
were 1,295 peers (of whom the majority, some 759, were hereditary peers).
Awarding of Peerages
Peerages are formally awarded by the Crown. Up to the present time, this has been done acting on the advice of the
Prime Minister of the day, although the Queen may, on occasion, make a personal award. They have usually been
published in Honours Lists, which are issued twice a year – at New Year and on the Queen’s Official Birthday. The
2000 New Year Honours List included six peerages. However, neither the Queen’s Birthday Honours List of June 2000
nor the 2001 New Year list included any peerages. Occasionally, special Honours Lists may be announced at other
times (eg. the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977); and, from time to time, separate lists of new “working peers” may be
issued. Under the present Government there has been an unusually large number of the latter, as it has sought to
redress party political imbalance and – in the run-up to the 1999 reforms – to increase the proportion of non-hereditary
peers. In this context, the peerages are awarded to individuals on the understanding that they will be active in the
House of Lords on behalf of their respective political parties, rather than simply as an honour. In practice, however,
this distinction is often blurred; and, formally, these peerages are no different from any other.
It has also been customary for an outgoing Prime Minister to draw up a “Resignation Honours List”; and “Dissolution
Honours Lists” have also be issued at, or following, the end of a Parliament. By their nature, such lists may be drawn
up by one Prime Minister but published during the term of office of his/her successor. (For instance, publication of
John Major’s “Resignation Honours”, which included ten peerages, coincided with Tony Blair’s list of working peers
in August 1997).
Although most peerages have been announced in lists, they can be announced individually at any time; as for instance,
in the case of Lord Macdonald of Tradeston, following his appointment as a Government Minister in August 1998.
Although Prime Ministers have tended to recommend peerages particularly for members of their own political party,
nominations have also been made by others, including by leaders of others parties; and members of other political
parties and individuals with no political allegiance have appeared on Honours Lists. Some peers may have had
distinguished careers outside politics – for instance, in the law, business, industry, the trade unions, local government
or public service. However, many of the individuals who have been granted peerages were once members of the House
of Commons (and, as such, have special privileges allowing use of some Commons’ facilities within the Palace of
Westminster).
It has been common practice for peerages to be awarded to former Cabinet ministers and Chief Whips and to some
other former ministers; and the same is true for former Speakers of the House of Commons and Archbishops (as well
as former Chiefs of the Defence Staff, the Lord Chief Justice, former Private Secretaries to the Queen and former heads
of the Civil Service). The House of Lords thus includes many Privy Counsellors among its members.
Of course, members of the House of Lords cannot at the same time be members of the House of Commons; and any
sitting MP awarded a peerage must resign his seat. Sometimes ensuing by-elections may be lost, as at Leyton in 1965
and Workington in 1976, so Prime Ministers have tended to become cautious in this respect.
Members of the House of Lords are not permitted to vote in Parliamentary elections, but they may vote in elections
to the European Parliament and in local elections.

At the time of writing, important changes in procedures for awarding peerages were in the pipeline. Following the
White Paper “Modernising Parliament: Reforming the Lords” (Cm 4183, January 1999), the Government has set up
a new House of Lords Appointments Commission, which comprises representatives of the three main political parties,
together with “independent figures”. The latter make up the majority of the Commission, and include the Chairman,
Lord Stevenson of Coddenham. (For further details, see page 81 below).
The new Appointments Commission is taking over from the Prime Minister the function of nominating peers without
party political affiliation. It has been stated that it will operate an “open and transparent system.”, inviting public
nominations and encouraging bodies to make nominations. The Prime Minister will not refuse a nomination which has
been passed by the Commission.
The Commission is also taking on the function hitherto performed by the Political Honours Scrutiny Committee in
vetting candidates for the peerage – to ensure that, for instance, there are no criminal activities, potential bankruptcy
or other scandals relating to them, or that awards are not made for financial return. This role will include questions
of propriety relating to political donations.
Peerages will still be formally conferred by the Queen on the recommendation of the Prime Minister; and the Prime
Minister will decide the overall level of nominations. The Prime Minister will pass on to the Crown nominations from
the Appointments Commission and from the political parties. The Government has said that the Prime Minister will
seek to influence the nominations only of his own party, other than in the “most exceptional circumstances.” It is
possible that there many be changes to the existing practice of timings of awards; and that further changes may follow,
if and when the second stage of reform is implemented.
The House of Lords Appointments Commission was formally established in May 2000; and it invited its first
nominations in September 2000. At the time of going to press (March 2001), these were being considered by the
Commission.
Hereditary Peers
Until November 1999, hereditary peers (that is to say peers by succession and peers of first creation granted an
hereditary peerage) formed the largest group of peers in the House of Lords. The ranks of hereditary peerages are, in
order of precedence: Duke, Marquess, Earl/Countess, Viscount, Baron/Lord/Baroness/Lady.
Most hereditary peerages are passed solely to male heirs; and women cannot inherit them. However, this depends on
the terms by which the peerage was created; and some do allow for succession to pass to a female where there is no
male heir (although male heirs always take precedence). Hereditary peeresses were not allowed to take their seats
until this was changed by the Peerage Act 1963, but there have never been more than a few women hereditary peers.
Following the introduction of life peerages under the Life Peerages Act 1958, the practice of granting hereditary
peerages diminished. After Harold Wilson became Prime Minister in 1964, no hereditary peerages were created, with
the exception of a small number of hereditary peerages created in the 1980s on the advice of Margaret Thatcher.
Since the passage of the House of Lords Act 1999, hereditary peerages have ceased, in themselves, to carry the right
to a seat in the House of Lords. However, 92 hereditary peers continue to sit, either by virtue of having been elected
by one of the political groupings, or, as one of the eligible office holders. This arrangement is intended to apply for
the “transitional period”, until such time as further reforms may be implemented.
A number of holders of hereditary peerages have also been awarded life peerages and are thus entitled to sit in the
House of Lords by virtue of those life peerages. However, they usually continue to be known by their hereditary titles.

All holders of hereditary peerages – inside or outside the House of Lords – may in fact, continue to use their titles,
which are not in themselves affected by the 1999 Act. In addition, those hereditary peers who no longer sit in the
House of Lords are now entitled to vote in Parliamentary elections and to stand for elections to the House of Commons.
(Life peers and hereditary peers who sit in the chamber continue to be disqualified.)
Although the role of the Crown is not itself affected by the recent changes, those members of the Royal Family who
were previously members of the House of Lords by virtue of their position as Royal Dukes (including the Prince of
Wales) no longer sit in the House.
Life Peers
Life peerages, as their name implies, cease with the death of the holder and do not pass to his/her heirs. All life
peerages carry the rank of baron or baroness.
Most life peerages are conferred under the powers contained in the Life Peerages Act 1958. Prior to the passage of
this Act, all peerages were hereditary, with the exception of these conferred on Law Lords under the Appellate
Jurisdiction Act 1876 (See section entitled Law Lords this page below).
There is no formal limit under the 1958 Act on the number of peerages which can be created, but usually the number
of creations in any one year has been relatively small. Honours Lists have usually contained between two and five
life peerages; and other lists of working peers, announced every year or two, have usually contained between 10 and
15 life peerages; although increased numbers have been created in recent years (see Awarding of Peerages on pages
10-11 above). As of 1st March 2001, there were 536 holders of peerages awarded under the 1958 Act.
As noted above, a small number of hereditary peers have also been awarded life peerages, thus entitling them to
continue to sit in the House of Lords.
Law Lords
Lords of Appeal in Ordinary are created under the Appellate Jurisdiction Act 1876, as subsequently amended. They
are created by the Crown on the advice of the Lord Chancellor. The maximum number has been increased over the
years from two to twelve. Initially, individuals held the peerages only until their retirement, but this was changed in
1887 and they are now held for life. Thus, although there are only twelve current holders of the office of Lord of Appeal
in the Ordinary, there are 28 holders of peerages created under the 1876 Act currently sitting in the House of Lords.
(Occasionally, Lords of Appeal in the Ordinary are appointed who already hold life peerages under the 1958 Life
Peerages Act).
The Lords of Appeal in Ordinary sit to hear appeals in civil cases, and (except from Scotland) in criminal cases; and
they may be joined by other holders or former holders of senior legal positions who are members of the House of Lords.
The Law Lords may also speak and participate in debates and votes in the House of Lords, although not all necessarily
choose to do so. They may choose to participate especially in debates and legislation on crime and the penal system,
when their legal expertise and experience is likely to be heard with particular interest. This experience may also be
drawn on to advise on legal points and interpretation of proposed legislation. (See also section entitled Judicial Role
at page 31; and list of Law Lords at page 72).

Lords Spiritual
The term ‘Lords Spiritual’ is used to describe the archbishops and bishops of the Church of England who sit in the
House of Lords. Their membership of the House of Lords, which dates back to before the Reformation, can be seen
as a reflection of the position of the Church of England as the established church. The Lords Spiritual comprise the
Archbishop of Canterbury, the Archbishop of York and the Bishops of London, Durham and Winchester (all of whom
are automatically entitled to sit in the House of Lords), plus 21 other English diocesan bishops, determined on the
basis of their length of service as diocesan bishops (including any years in a previous episcopal see). When any of the
21 bishops without an automatic seat retires or is promoted to one of the more senior posts, the longest serving
diocesan bishop outside the Lords then joins the bench of bishops.
Until 1847 all diocesan bishops sat in the House of Lords, but with the creation of new sees – there are now over 40
– it was felt necessary to limit the numbers. The Bishop of Sodor and Man does not sit in the House of Lords, but
instead has a seat in the Manx parliament (the House of Keys).
When a bishop who is already a member of the House of Lords changes his see or becomes an archbishop, he has to
be reintroduced to the House as the representative of that particular see. For example, the present Archbishop of York,
Dr David Hope, has been introduced to the House of Lords three times: as Bishop of Wakefield, then Bishop of
London, and most recently as Archbishop of York.
Bishops and archbishops sit as such in the House of Lords only until they retire. The retirement age is now set at 70,
This did not apply to Bishops appointed before the retirement age was laid down, but the last bishop to whom this
applied has now retired. It has become common practice to award the Archbishop’s of Canterbury and York life
peerages when they retire. The former Archbishop of York, Dr John Habgood is now a life peer; and so too is the former
Bishop of Liverpool, Dr David Sheppard.
The Lords Spiritual sit together on benches on the government side of the House. This position is in accordance with
an Act passed by Parliament in 1539. Because the bishops sit together in this way they are sometimes collectively
referred to as “the bench of bishops”. The bishops wear robes (rochet and chimere) when in the Chamber (unlike other
peers, who wear their robes only on formal occasions such as the state opening of Parliament).
The attendance of the Lords Spiritual is variable. Obviously they have other duties; and attendance may depend on a
range of factors, including the personal interests of the individual concerned, the perceived spiritual and social
importance of issues being debated on a particular day, the proximity of a bishop’s see to London, and the coincidence
of a bishop having other engagements in London on any particular day.
The House of Lords occasionally debates issues which directly affect the Church of England and certain measures
affecting the church still have to go through Parliament. Such occasions normally see a relatively high attendance of
bishops. A fairly recent example was the issue of whether women could become Church of England priests. Other
matters may also affect the Church’s interest directly. Examples include education debates, because the Church of
England manages a large number of schools; and major property legislation, because the Church of England, through
the Church Commissioners, is a major property owner.
Members of the Bench of Bishops try to ensure that, whenever a matter which might be considered as raising moral
issues is debated, at least one bishop is present and speaks during the debate. An official at Lambeth Palace has the
job of briefing the Archbishop of Canterbury and other bishops as necessary and co-ordinating their response, where
appropriate. A duty bishop is, in any case, present each day the House is sitting in order to lead prayers.

Representatives of other churches and religions do not sit as of right in the House of Lords. However, some individuals
prominent in such churches or religions have been awarded life peerages. For instance, the present Archbishop of
Armagh, in the Church of Ireland, Dr Robin Eames sits in the House of Lords by virtue of a life peerage.
(For a list of current Lords Spiritual see page 50).
Women Peers
There were no women members of the House of Lords until the passing in 1958 of the Life Peerage Act. That Act did
not discriminate – under it, both men and women could be created life peers.
The 1963 Peerage Act allowed women who inherited peerages by succession to take their seat in the Lords, but they
have been relatively few in number, as the great majority of peerages were and are inherited by men.
There are currently (March 2001) 110 women peers in the House of Lords, of whom 106 are life peers and four are
hereditary peers. (For a list of women peers see page 63).
Leave of Absence
Peers may apply for Leave of Absence from the House, although in doing so these peers are expected not to attend
sittings of the House. Leave is normally granted to those who apply for it. A peer on Leave of Absence may apply to
have this terminated, but must give a month’s notice. Unless a request for termination is made, Leave of Absence lasts
for the length of a Parliament. After a general election, peers who wish to continue on Leave of Absence are invited
to re-apply for it. The system of Leave of Absence was brought in by an amendment made to the Standing Orders of
the House in the late 1950s. Most peers who have taken advantage of this have been hereditary peers by succession;
and there are likely to be relatively few instances of it in the House as now constituted. Indeed, there are now only
three peers on Leave of Absence, compared with 61 in the 1998/99 Session. However, since there is no formal
attendance requirement, there may be other peers who, for whatever reason, do not, in practice, play an active part in
the affairs of the House.
Peers who are bankrupts, aliens or minors are disqualified from participating in the affairs of the House (although
there would, in any case be no instances of the latter in the present House). Detention in prison does not, in itself,
disqualify a peer from membership, although the individuals obviously are unable to attend proceedings.
Working Peers and Attendance
The term “working peer” has no official definition, but is often used to describe a peer who has been granted a life
peerage on the understanding that he/she will attend and play an active part in the House of Lords on a regular basis.
These peers have usually been recommended for appointment by the Prime Minister or the leaders of the other parties
on that assumption, and are generally recognised as political appointments.
In practice, some peers who have been appointed on this basis may, in the event attend the House comparatively rarely
for one reason or another. Conversely, there are also individuals who have been awarded life peerages in the twiceyearly Honours Lists (as opposed to “working peers”) who, in practice, attend the House on a regular basis and play
an active part in its work. Those hereditary peers who have been elected by their colleagues to serve in the present
House or who sit as office holders are also likely to be, for the most part, regular attenders.
Previously, life peers tended on average to attend more regularly than hereditary peers. In the 1998/99 Session, (the
last before the reforms) average overall attendance was 446 – less than half of those eligible; but, following the recent
changes, in the 1999/2000 Session the average overall attendance was 352, slightly more than half of those eligible.
However, actual attendance will vary according to a peer’s other commitments and to the nature of the business. Of
course, simple attendance is not, in itself, the only yardstick which may be used to judge the contribution made by

E X E C U T I V E A G E N C I E S – G E N E R A L I N F O R M AT I O N
Executive Agencies are now an established feature of United Kingdom’s
Government. There are now approximately 130 of them, employing nearly
300,000 staff. The Ministry of Defence has the largest number of Agencies. In
addition to these Agencies, there are a further four Government Departments
(Crown Prosecution Service, H.M. Customs and Excise, Inland Revenue and
Serious Fraud Office) which are run on similar lines (known as “Next Steps”)
and which are therefore also listed here. Together, these bodies now account for
roughly three-quarters of all civil service staff.
ESTABLISHMENT OF EXECUTIVE AGENCIES
The Executive Agencies were the product of pressures for change in the
structure of the civil service from various sources over many years, including
politicians, experts in public administration and the civil service itself.
The need for a greater general awareness of modern management techniques
within the civil service was identified by public administration experts as long
ago as 1968, when the Fulton Report called for better management skills and
more diverse recruitment possibilities.
Following the 1979 general election, the then Prime Minister (Margaret
Thatcher) appointed Sir Robin Ibbs as her Efficiency Adviser; and an Efficiency
Unit, headed by Sir Robin, combining civil servants and representatives of
private industry, was set up within Whitehall. It was charged with the task of
examining ways in which the civil service might be made more efficient.
The associated Financial Management Initiative (FMI) laid great stress on civil
service managers having as much information as possible on the costings of their
operations, on the delegation of administrative decision making, and on civil
service managers taking responsibility themselves for the budgets of their
operations.
In 1987 an Efficiency Unit Report Improving Management In Government - the
Next Steps argued that many Government Departments were too big to be
managed effectively as single units. The Report concluded that the best way to
increase efficiency was, wherever possible, to split the day-to-day administration
of services from the policy making role; and to do this by creating separate
management units, each charged with fulfiling specified administrative tasks. It
argued that this change would lead to a better use of resources.
These separate administrative units, would still ultimately be responsible to
Ministers. However, managers working within each unit would be free to
manage day-to-day administrative matters, but within parameters set down by
Ministers. Effectively each separate unit would be an administrative agency of
1 3
E X E C U T I V E A G E N C I E S – G E N E R A L I N F O R M AT I O N
the Minister or Secretary of State, to whom it would be accountable.
Taken from the title of the Efficiency Unit’s 1987 Report, the term “Next Steps”
soon became used to describe the civil service reforms under which Executive
Agencies were set up. Consequently, the Agencies themselves were frequently
described as ‘Next Steps Agencies”.
The first Executive Agency, established in August 1988, was the Vehicle
Inspectorate, responsible then to the Secretary of State for Transport. This was
followed later the same year by Companies House and HMSO. More Agencies
were set up in 1989; and the rate of transfer to Agency status increased
considerably in the years following. A number of Agencies (including HMSO)
were subsequently privatised; but there have been no further privatisations since
the present government came to office in 1997.
The Government announced in March 1998 that the main programme of
creating new Executive Agencies was complete; and that the focus would switch
from agency creation to improvement in performance. There would be a
stronger focus on target setting, performance reporting, benchmarking against
comparable organisations, and on co-operation with other public service deliverers.
THE STRUCTURE AND FUNDING OF AGENCIES
The structure of Agencies varies considerably. Some have very few employees,
while others employ thousands. Some Agencies charge for some or all of their
services, while others rely solely on government funding.
A Framework Documentis issued for each Agency, delineating the structure
within which that Agency operates.
This Document contains details of:
• The Agency’s aims and objectives
• Services provided
• Responsibilities of the Chief Executive to his/her Minister
• Financial objectives, planning, reporting arrangements and accounting
procedures, personnel and pay arrangements.
At the start of the project to establish Agencies, it was suggested that all Agencies
should have full cost income/expenditure accounts; and those which were selffinancing, or intended to become so, should operate Trading Funds.
Having a Trading Fundenables an Agency to operate like a Government-owned
company. It is a financial framework which includes costs and receipts, capital
expenditure, borrowing; and which calculates net cash flow. Agency Trading
Funds must break even, taking one year with another; and there must be an
1 4
E X E C U T I V E A G E N C I E S – G E N E R A L I N F O R M AT I O N
appropriate return on capital. Trading Funds can borrow to meet capital
requirements. They can also establish reserves from their surpluses. The
operation of Agency Trading Funds is governed by the Government Trading
Act 1990, which amended the earlier 1973 Trading Funds Act. Some Agencies,
however, do not yet operate Trading Funds.
In Agencies that operate Trading Funds or have their own vote, the Chief
Executive acts as a Treasury-appointed Accounting Officer. In other cases, the
parent Department’s Permanent Secretary, as Principal Accounting Officer,
appoints the Agency’s Chief Executive as Agency Accounting Officer.
STAFFING
The vast majority of staff employed by the Executive Agencies are civil servants.
(Those Agency staff who are not civil servants are mostly military personnel,
employed by Agencies of the Secretary of State for Defence.)
Each Agency is headed by a Chief Executive (or, in a few cases, another official
of equivalent status), who is responsible for its administration.
The general policy is to advertise Chief Executive appointments, to ensure that
they are made from as wide a field as possible. Additionally, certain other senior
posts are sometimes advertised.
There has been a tendency to appoint a proportion of senior Agency personnel
from outside the established civil service, in order to gain the benefit of their
commercial management skills and wider experience. These people, appointed
by open competition, become civil servants – although quite often temporary or
short-term ones – when they start to work for an Agency.
The most senior Agency staff often have an element of performance-related pay
included within their employment contracts, which may be for a fixed term. In
the case of some larger Agencies, performance bonuses can sometimes take a
Chief Executive’s salary above the level of certain Permanent Secretaries.
Responsibility for civil service pay and grading below senior levels was delegated
to Departments and Agencies from 1996. This change, while affecting
negotiating procedures on pay and conditions, did not alter the status of the
majority of Agency employees as civil servants.
1 5
E X E C U T I V E A G E N C I E S – G E N E R A L I N F O R M AT I O N
RESPONSIBILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY
The intention in establishing Executive Agencies was, as far as practicable, to
separate the executive functions of Government from policy making and advice,
so that the former would be carried out by new Agencies under the auspices of
the relevant Department. The Chief Executives, who are in day-to-day charge
of each Agency, are responsible to the appropriate Minister for their
management within the resources set by the Government. Agency Chief
Executives tend to have a much higher profile than Departmental civil servants.
They are, frequently...the public face of their Agencies, particularly in areas
where there is direct contact with the public.
There has been criticism that the division of responsibility between Ministers
and Agency Chief Executives is not always clear. On occasion, situations have
arisen in which there have been well-publicised differences over what may be
attributable to policy decisions and to administrative decisions. There is also
scope for discussion as to whether, in the cases of major administrative errors,
the buck should stop with the Chief Executive of the Agency concerned or, in
the last resort, with the Minister who should be ultimately accountable to
Parliament for the performance of the Agency.
Governments have consistently stated that Ministers are accountable to
Parliament for all the activities of their Departments, including Executive
Agencies. Moreover, each Agency’s Framework Document should set out the
nature of the divide between the Chief Executive’s day-to-day management
functions and the Departmental Minister’s policy responsibilities.
When the first Agencies were established, concern was expressed by some MPs
that written Parliamentary Questions about matters transferred to Agency
administration no longer received a written reply from the Minister, published
in Hansard. Instead, replies from Agency Chief Executives were initially placed
in the Library of the House of Commons. However, in response to criticism, it
was agreed that these letters should be published in House of Commons
Hansard. In addition, the present Government agreed that questions on matters
relating to the Prison Service in England and Wales should be answered directly
by Home Office Ministers.
It should be noted that in the case of Agencies of the Secretary of State for
Defence – other than those which operate Trading Funds – Ministerial
responsibility is, in practice, devolved to a senior official in the Ministry of
Defence who is designated the Agency’s owner, to whom it reports and who is
responsible for setting targets etc. This reflects the large number of Agencies
under the Ministry’s auspices and the need to maintain integrity of the chain of
command. Ultimate responsibility remains with the Secretary of State, who will,
for instance, agree targets and who remains accountable to Parliament.
With the introduction of devolution, responsibility for some Executive Agencies
1 6
E X E C U T I V E A G E N C I E S – G E N E R A L I N F O R M AT I O N
has been transferred from Ministers in the UK Government to the appropriate
Ministers/Secretaries in the Scottish Parliament, the Welsh Assembly or the
Northern Ireland Assembly.
PRIOR OPTIONS REVIEW AND PERFORMANCE TARGETS
The ‘Next Steps’ Programme has the objectives of getting value for money,
efficiency and improved services in the public sector. The process has been that
proposals for Agency status are examined in detail in a ‘Prior Options Review’,so
as to establish how best these objectives can be obtained. A wide range of
possibilities is considered – including keeping responsibility for the functions
within the Government Department concerned; establishing an Agency; putting
the functions out to the private sector; and even whether the functions need to
be undertaken at all.
If a decision is taken to establish an Agency, then that Agency is set a series of
Performance Targets
from the time of its establishment. Central to these targets is
the expectation that the Agency will improve both the quality of service provided
and the value for money obtained. These will also be in line with the objectives
set out in the White Paper ‘Modern Public Services’ (published in July 1998),
and in the guidance ‘Better Quality Services’ (issued by the then Chancellor of
the Duchy of Lancaster, Dr David Clark, also in July 1998).
Performance targets for established Agencies are set annually by the responsible
Ministers, in consultation with the Agency concerned. Performance against
these targets is then measured; and the results are published annually in each
Agency’s Annual Report and Accounts.
These targets differ according to the nature of the Agency; but they may include,
for instance, specific targets to process documents within a specified period, to
answer telephone calls within a specified time, for error or failure-free operation,
and for reductions in costs.
AGENCY REVIEWS
The performance of each Agency is reviewed on a five-yearly basis, or more
often if it is thought necessary. Essentially, an Agency Review involves:
• an evaluation of the Agency’s performance
• a re-appraisal of the prior options
The latter involves looking again at the options considered prior to the creation
of the Agency. These may include privatisation; contracting out or market
testing of services; rationalisation; merging with or transferring work to other
organisations; or abolition.
If it is decided that Agency status should continue, then the Review may propose
measures to improve efficiency and changes to the Agency’s Framework
Document, as necessary.

RECENT AND FORTHCOMING CHANGES
Since the publication of the last edition of this guide, the new NHS Purchasing
and Supply Agency has been established. In addition, the Industrial Tribunals
Service has been replaced by the Appeals Service Agency; and the Joint Air
Reconnaissance Intelligence Centre and Military Survey have merged to form
the Defence Geographic and Imagery Intelligence Agency.
The Army Technical Support Agency, the Defence Clothing and Textile
Agency, the Social Security Information Technology Services Agency, the RAF
Signals Engineering Establishment and the Training and Employment Agency
(Northern Ireland) are no longer Executive Agencies and are therefore no longer
listed in this Guide.
Responsibility for the Buying Agency has been transferred from the Minister for
the Cabinet Office to the Office of Government Commerce to within HM
Treasury. So, too, has that for the Central Computer and Telecommunications
Agency and for the Property Advisers to the Civil Estate; although it is expected
that they will cease to function as Executive Agencies during the course of 2001.
It is anticipated that the Naval Bases and Supply Agency and the Ships Support
Agency will merge to form the War Ships Support Agency from April 2001.
It is also reported that the Farming and Rural Conservation Agency and the
Public Trust Office will cease to be Executive Agencies during 2001.
Thus, while new Executive Agencies are still being created, other bodies are
ceasing to operate as Agencies, while others are consolidating into larger
Agencies through merger.
Since the restoration of devolved government in Northern Ireland, most
Executive Agencies there come under the auspices of the Northern Ireland
Assembly and are answerable to the appropriate Minister, although a small
number remain accountable to the Secretary of State.

“QUANGOS”
THE WORK OF THE COMMISSIONER FOR PUBLIC
A P P O I N T M E N T S A N D A P P LY I N G F O R P U B L I C A P P O I N T M E N T S
ORIGINS OF THE POST
The Government created the post of Commissioner for Public Appointments in 1995 in response to a
recommendation in the first report of the Committee on Standards in Public Life (the Nolan
Committee), which was appointed by the then Prime Minister to inquire into standards in British
public life. During their enquiries, the Committee encountered public concern about appointments to
“Quangos” and reported a widespread belief that such appointments were not always made on merit.
However, they concluded that the evidence for this belief was circumstantial and inconclusive; and
they identified the main weakness in the public appointments system as being the absence of effective
external scrutiny. As a means of introducing a mechanism for reviewing the work of individual
Departments and identifying failures of system or practices, the Committee recommended the
appointment of an independent Commissioner for Public Appointments.
THE COMMISSIONER’S ROLE
The post of the Commissioner for Public Appointments is independent of government. The
Commissioner’s role is set out in the Order in Council, 1995, amended 1998, which is to monitor and
regulate the appointment process and to provide advice to Departments and to individuals who are
interested in applying for an appointment. I have serviced as Commissioner since 1st March 1999,
following the retirement of Sir Leonard Peach.
In Great Britain the Commissioner oversees approximately 12,500 ministerial appointments to
executive and advisory non-departmental public bodies, public corporations, the utility regulators and
nationalised industries.
Contrary to what some people think, the Office of the Commissioner for Public Appointments (OCPA)
has no responsibility for making public appointments, nor holds a register of those interested.
However, it does work closely with the Public Appointments Unit (PAU). The (PAU) maintains a
computerised register of people who are interested in being considered for public appointments. They
do not make any appointments themselves but provide recommendations to Government Departments
and also to Ministers.
THE CODE OF PRACTICE AND GUIDANCE FOR PUBLIC APPOINTMENTS
The Commissioner’s overall objective in publishing the Code of Practice is to create an efficient and
a transparent process of public appointments, which will produce results based on merit and in which
the candidates and the general public can have confidence. The Code of Practice is based on seven
principles.

THE WORK OF THE COMMISSIONER FOR PUBLIC
A P P O I N T M E N T S A N D A P P LY I N G F O R P U B L I C A P P O I N T M E N T S
1. Ministerial Responsibility
The ultimate responsibility for appointments rests with Ministers.
2. Merit
All public appointments should be governed by the overriding principle of selection based on merit,
by the well informed choice of individuals who, through their abilities, experience and qualities,
match the needs of the public bodies in question.
3. Independent Scrutiny
No appointment will take place without first being scrutinised by a panel which must include an
independent assessor.
4. Equal Opportunities
Departments should sustain programmes to promote and deliver equal opportunities principles.
5. Probity
Board members of public bodies must be committed to the principles and values of public service
and perform their duties with integrity.
6. Openness and Transparency
The principles of open Government must be applied to the appointments process; its workings must
be transparent; and information must be provided about appointments made.
7. Proportionality
The appointments procedures need to be subject to the principle of “proportionality”; that is they
should be appropriate for the nature of the post and for the size and weight of its responsibilities.
Those covering ministerial responsibility, merit, equal opportunities and probity are a strengthened
reassertion of what had been stipulated before the Nolan Committee’s report and the Commissioner’s
appointment. Independent scrutiny, openness and transparency, and proportionality are important
additions, the observation of which will increase public confidence in the appointments process.
APPLYING FOR PUBLIC APPOINTMENTS
Like any other application for an appointment, it is wise for those seeking a post to do some homework.
The first step is to obtain the annual publication “Public Bodies”, which is published in December
each year by the Stationery Office, and which should be available through the local library. This lists
the public bodies in existence on 31st March in the relevant year. Amongst other things, it provides
the name, the number of staff, the total gross expenditure, the source of the body’s annual report, if
any, the gender and remuneration of the Chairman, the Deputy and the number and gender of the
members and their pay, if any. This book is a valuable source of reference in providing outline
information on the various bodies which exist, which may be of interest to the potential applicant, and
on which best suit the applicants skills and background.

A P P O I N T M E N T S A N D A P P LY I N G F O R P U B L I C A P P O I N T M E N T S
The second step, having identified the names of public bodies of particular interest, is to contact the
relevant Government Department and to ask them to send out any literature they have on these bodies,
eg: annual reports.
The next steps are concerned with making applications for a post or posts. First, the candidate should
contact the Public Appointments Unit (PAU) whose address is the Cabinet Office, 4 Central
Buildings, Matthew Parker Street, London, SW1H 9NL. A letter expressing interest will produce an
application form for inclusion on the PAU’s list, which can then be completed using the knowledge
derived from the research which has been recommended. Since Departments are also building their
own lists as a result of more widespread use of advertising and, therefore, may confine their search to
these, it is wise to write to the sponsoring Department as well, expressing an interest. Lastly, even if
registered with both the PAU and one or more Department, it will also be important for those
interested in appointments to respond to advertisements which, in many cases, will appear in the
national newspapers; and not to depend entirely upon such registrations. This also provides an
opportunity for candidates registered on lists to provide the latest information on their qualifications
and background.

Functions:
The Public Appointments Unit maintains a computerised register of people who are interested in being considered for
appointments at national, regional and local levels. This is known as the central list.
The Unit has an advisory role. It makes no public appointments itself, but provides names of potential candidates for a

The Greater London Authority (GLA) comprises a directly elected Mayor – the Mayor
of London – and a separately elected Assembly – the London Assembly.
The Mayor has an executive role: he is responsible for preparing strategies to deal with
London-wide issues and for co-ordinating action on a London-wide basis. The role of the
Assembly is to scrutinise the Mayor’s activities and to question the Mayor about his
decisions. The Assembly is also able to investigate other issues of importance to the
people of London and make proposals to the Mayor.
The GLA has responsibilities in eight main areas: transport, planning, economic
development and regeneration, the environment, police, fire and emergency planning,
culture and health.
The GLA was established under the Greater London Authority Act 1999, which sets out
three principal purposes for the Authority. These are to promote:
(i) Economic development and wealth creation in London;
(ii) Social development in London;
(iii) The improvement of the environment in London.
In using its powers in furtherance of these purposes, the Authority must consider the
effects of its actions on Londoners, health and on the achievement of sustainable
development.
The Greater London Authority, assumed its responsibilities on 3rd July 2000. However,
the Mayor and members of the Assembly were sworn into office the week after the
elections, which took place on 4th May 2000.
The Mayor of London
The Mayor of London is elected for four years. The present Mayor, Ken Livingstone,
was elected on 4th May 2000.
The specific role and duties of the mayor are to:
• Represent and promote London at home and abroad and speak on behalf of the
people of London;
• Draw up strategies and plans to tackle London-wide issues, including transport,
economic development and regeneration, planning, air quality, noise, waste,
biodiversity, and culture;
• Control the new transport and economic development bodies (Transport for London
and the London Development Agency) and appoint their members;
• Make appointments to the new police and fire authorities (the Metropolitan Police
Authority and the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority);
• Set budgets for these four new functional bodies (subject to approval of the Assembly,
which may amend them by a two-thirds majority);
• Publish regular reports on the state of the environment in London.

The Mayor has powers to introduce certain road use and workplace parking charges, and
announced proposals for this in July 2001.
The Mayor also has general powers to act to further the principal purposes of the
Authority – to promote economic and social development and the improvement of the
environment in Greater London.
The Mayor is required to consult widely in preparing strategies and exercising these
general powers – with, for instance, the London boroughs, and representatives of
business, the voluntary sector and London’s ethnic and faith communities. He must also
take account of the need to promote equal opportunities for all. The Mayor has to report
annually on arrangements to secure this. The Mayor is also required to ensure that the
strategies are consistent with each other.
The Mayor is accountable to the electorate of London through direct election. However,
whilst in office, he is also subject to a number of checks and balances. The Assembly has
a major role in scrutinising the Mayor’s actions. The Mayor is required to inform the
Assembly of all major decisions, with the reasons for them; and to attend a public
question time in the Assembly, where he can be questioned about his actions. He is also
required to consult relevant interested parties when drawing up plans.
There is also provision for an annual public ‘State of London’ debate, where the Mayor’s
main activities can be reviewed; and for a twice yearly ‘People’s Question Time’, at which
the public will be able to question the Mayor and members of the Assembly in person.
The Deputy Mayor is appointed by the Mayor from amongst the Assembly members and
is automatically a member of the Metropolitan Police Authority. The Mayor also has the
power to dismiss the Deputy Mayor. The present Deputy Mayor, Nicky Gavron, was
appointed to serve for a period of one year from May 2000. She was re-appointed for a
further year in May 2001.
Based on the recommendation of the Senior Salaries Review Body, the Mayor receives a
salary of £86,832 and the Deputy Mayor a salary of £53,244.
The Mayor has appointed a Cabinet to advise him on policy and strategy. This includes
some individuals with specific responsibilities, such as the Chair of the London
Development Agency and the Chair of the London Fire and Emergency Planning
Authority, together with others with expertise to advise on particular areas and to reflect
particular interests. There is no collective responsibility – the Mayor is responsible for all
decisions.

endorse major international events of which London might make a bid;
(b) Encourage the development of creative industries as part of the London economy;

The new political institutions in Northern Ireland were established following the
multi-party negotiations which resulted in the Good Friday Agreement of 10th
April 1998.
This agreement was endorsed in a referendum held in Northern Ireland on
Thursday 22nd May 1998. 71% of those who voted in the referendum
supported the Agreement. 81% of those eligible to vote, cast their votes.
A referendum on the Good Friday Agreement was also held in the Irish
Republic. Just over half (55.5%) of those eligible to vote took part, and the vote
was overwhelmingly in favour of the Agreement, with 94% voting yes.
Assembly Elections
The Assembly has 108 members, who are elected using the Single Transferable
Vote system of proportional representation (which has been used in Northern
Ireland for elections to the European Parliament since 1979). There are 18
constituencies – the same as for the Westminster Parliament – and six members
are elected for each constituency.
The electors vote for individual candidates (who state political affiliation on the
ballot paper, where appropriate), by indicating their order of preference beside
the candidates.
When the votes are calculated, candidates have to reach a quota in order to be
elected. (This is determined by dividing the total of ballot papers returned by the
number of seats, plus one). If a candidate passes the quota, any votes in excess
of the quota are then redistributed according to the second preferences
indicated. If no candidate reaches the quota, the lowest-placed candidate drops
out and his/her second preferences are then transferred. The process continues
until the required number of candidates is elected.
The first elections for the Northern Ireland Assembly were held on Thursday
25th June 1998.
The 1998 Good Friday Agreement envisaged that the next elections to the
Assembly would be in May 2003; thereafter elections would take place every
four years.
Structure of Government
The Assembly exercises full legislative and executive authority over all matters
which are the responsibility of Northern Ireland Departments.
Day-to-day executive responsibility is exercised by the First Minister and
Deputy First Minister, who are elected by the Assembly on a cross-community
basis, together with ten Departmental Ministers. These Ministerial posts are
allocated to political parties in proportion to their respective strengths in the
Assembly. Together they constitute the Executive Committee, which considers
issues that cover the responsibility of more than one Department, prioritises
executive business and seeks to recommend a common position, where
necessary. It also seeks to agree a programme of government and an agreed
budget, which is subject to approval by the Assembly.
2 2 6
There is provision for the Speaker of the Assembly to be elected by members of
the Assembly on a cross-community basis. The Presiding Officer initially
appointed by the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland was subsequently
confirmed as Speaker of the Assembly. Three Deputy Speakers have also been
elected by the Assembly.
The Assembly has ten statutory committees, covering each Northern Ireland
Government Department, which have a role to play in respect of scrutiny, policy
development, consultation and initiation of legislation. There is also a committee
performing a similar role in respect of the office of the First Minister and Deputy
First Minister. The Chairmen and Deputy Chairmen of Committees are
allocated in proportion to the respective party strengths in the Assembly; and
membership of committees is in the broad proportion to party strengths. In
addition to these departmental committees, the Assembly has established a
number of standing committees relating to various aspects of its work and may
also establish other committees.
Responsibilities
Areas for which the Assembly and Executive have responsibility include many
aspects of the following:
Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
Arts and Culture
Economic Development
Education and Training
Environment
Health and Social Services
Housing
Local Government
Planning
Roads and Transport
Sport and Leisure
Tourism
Trade and Industry
They are also responsible for a wide range of public bodies pending services in
Northern Ireland.
The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland remains responsible for matters not
devolved to the Assembly. These include international relations, policing,
security policy, prisons, criminal justice, taxation, national insurance, regulation
of financial services, and regulation of telecommunications and broadcasting.
The Secretary of State represents Northern Ireland interests in the UK Cabinet.
Inter-Governmental and North-South bodies
The North-South Ministerial Council brings together Ministers from Northern
Ireland and the Irish Government to develop consultation, co-operation and
action on matters of mutual interest. Six Implementation Bodies have so far been
established to implement policies agreed by Ministers in the Council – namely
the Food Safety Promotion Board, the Foyle, Carlingford and Irish Lights
Commission, the North-South Language Body, the Special European Union
Programmes Body, the Trade and Business Development Body and Waterways
Ireland. They are jointly funded and staffed by a combination of civil servants
2 2 7
from North and South and by directly recruited staff. More implementation
bodies may be established by agreement in future.
The British-Irish Council aims to promote the development of relationships
among the people of the UK and Ireland. It comprises representatives of the UK
and Irish Governments, together which others from the devolved institutions in
Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and from the Isle of Man and the
Channel Islands.
The British-Irish Intergovernmental Conference is intended to promote bilateral
co-operation on matters of mutual interest between the UK and Irish
Governments, including in particular, issues relating to Northern Ireland.
Northern Ireland Ministers attend when such matters are discussed.
Composition of the Assembly
The results of the 1998 Assembly elections, in June 1998 were as follows:
Party
Ulster Unionist Party
Social Democratic and Labour Party
Democratic Unionist Party
Sinn Fein
Alliance Party
UK Unionist Party
Independent
Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition
Progressive Unionist Party
Number of Seats

After the elections, the three Independent members formed the United Unionist
Assembly Party in September 1998. Four of the five members elected under the
auspices of the UK Unionist Party resigned from it and formed the Northern
Ireland Unionist Party in January 1999. One of these four was subsequently
expelled from the new party and now sits as an Independent Unionist.
The composition of the Assembly, as at July 2001, was therefore as follows:
Party
Ulster Unionist Party
Social Democratic and Labour Party
Democratic Unionist Party
Sinn Fein
Alliance Party
Northern Ireland Unionist Party
United Unionist Assembly Party
Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition
Progressive Unionist Party
UK Unionist Party

The Speaker of the Assembly (The Lord Alderdice) was elected as an Alliance
Party member and is included as such in the above lists. However, his role in that
capacity (akin to that the Speaker of the House of Commons) is non-party
political.
Transfer of Powers
The first meeting of the Assembly took place on 1st July 1998. At this stage, the
Assembly had no executive or legislative powers.
Rt Hon David Trimble MP (Ulster Unionist) and Séamus Mallon MP (SDLP)
were elected as First Minister and Deputy First Minister respectively at the
Assembly’s first meeting. Other Ministers were appointed on 29th November
1999.
On 1st July 2001 David Trimble resigned as First Minister, and Sir Reg Empey
took over the functions of that office on a caretaker basis. As provided under the
Northern Ireland Act 1998 the Deputy First Minister, Séamus Mallon, also
ceased to hold office on David Trimble’s resignation. However, Séamus Mallon
continued to exercise the functions of that office. The power to exercise the
functions of First Minister and Deputy First Minister ends with the election of
a new First Minister and Deputy First Minister, or at the end of the period of six
weeks within which those elections must be held (i.e. until 12th August 2001).
The functions of the Northern Ireland Government Departments were agreed
by the Assembly in February 1999.
Power was formally devolved to the Assembly and the Executive Committee of
Ministers on 2nd December 1999. From this date, they assumed full
responsibilities and the new North-South and inter-governmental bodies began
functioning. Powers were suspended by the Secretary of State on 11th February
2000; but devolved powers were resumed from 30th May 2000.
The Lord Alderdice (Alliance) was initially appointed as Presiding Officer by
the Secretary of State, but was confirmed as Speaker of the Assembly when
powers were devolved in December 1999. Three Deputy Speakers – one each
from the Ulster Unionist Party, the SDLP and the Women’s Coalition – were
elected on 31st January 2000.
Meetings
The Assembly meets in Parliament Buildings at Stormont, Belfast, on Mondays,
and Tuesdays, commencing at 10.30. If necessary business may be extended
into Wednesday.

INTRODUCTORY NOTE
Functions and Powers
The Scottish Parliament has the power to legislate on devolved matters in Scotland. In
addition to public legislation, it can also pass private legislation in devolved areas. The
Scottish Executive is accountable to the Scottish Parliament (in a way similar to that in
which the UK Government is accountable to the UK Parliament).
The Parliament also oversees the operation of Scottish public bodies and of other public
bodies in so far as they relate to devolved matters.
The Scottish Parliament has established its own committees on a range of matters.
The Scottish Parliament has the power to vary the standard rate of income tax set by the
UK Parliament. It can increase or decrease the standard rate by up to 3p. Liability to
payment will be determined by residency. Under present arrangements, dividend and
savings income would not be affected.
All matters not specifically reserved to the UK Parliament and Government are devolved.
They include all those which were previously the responsibility of the Scottish Office.
More specifically, devolved areas include various aspects of policy relating to agriculture,
fisheries and food; the arts; economic development; education and training; the
environment; health; home affairs and the law; housing; local government; social work;
sport; and transport. (For a fuller list of devolved responsibilities see page pp9-10 below).
There are certain matters which are, however, reserved to the UK Parliament and
Government. These relate principally to defence, foreign affairs, central economic and
fiscal policies, social security, border controls and immigration. (For a fuller list of
reserved responsibilities, see page pp 11-12 below).
Scottish Parliamentary Elections
The Parliament has 129 members. 73 members of the Scottish Parliament (MSPs) are
elected on a ‘first past-the-post’ basis to represent individual constituencies (which
correspond to Westminster constituencies, except that Orkney and Shetland have a
representative each). A further 56 additional members are elected on a “topping-up”
basis, seven from each of eight regions (which correspond to Euro-constituencies).
In Scottish Parliamentary elections, each elector can cast two votes – one for a
constituency representative and one for a political party. The regional seats are allocated
on the basis of the total party votes for each region; - but taking account of the number
of constituency seats won by parties in the region. In effect, this is a “topping-up” process
to give an overall result in terms of seats which reflects more closely the votes cast for
parties.
7
Entitlement to ‘additional member’ seats is calculated initially by dividing the number of
votes for each party by the number of constituency seats won in the region, plus one. The
party with the highest total is then allocated the first seat. The process then continues,
including any additional member seats already won in the calculation, until all seven seats
have been allocated. The individuals are chosen according to their position on their
respective party lists (but excluding any who have already been elected on a constituency
basis).
The first elections for the Scottish Parliament were held on Thursday 6th May 1999.
First Meeting and Transfer of Powers
The first meeting of the Parliament was held on 12th May 1999. The Parliament
assumed full legislative powers on 1st July 1999, when a formal opening ceremony was
also held.
Meetings of the Parliament
The Parliament meets in its temporary accommodation at the Church of Scotland
Assembly Hall, The Mound, Edinburgh. Committees usually meet in the Parliament’s
Committee Chambers Building on George IV Bridge, Edinburgh.
The Parliament can meet at any of the following times: Monday 2.30pm-5.30pm;
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9.30am-5.30pm; and Friday 9.30am-12.30pm. In
practice, the Parliament tends to meet on Wednesday afternoons and all day on
Thursdays.
The main body of the Parliament does not meet when Committees of the Parliament are
sitting: – usually on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. There are also weeks when the
Parliament is in recess and does not meet.
