Industrial Injuries Advisory Council
Work and Pensions
Chris Grayling (Minister of State (Employment), Work and Pensions; Epsom and Ewell, Conservative)
In accordance with the Cabinet Office’s guidance on public bodies, which took effect from
Government and ensured the council’s control and governance arrangements continue to meet the recognised principles of good corporate governance. The review is now complete and I am happy to inform the House that reviewers concluded the IIAC remain as an arm’s length body sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions and that it continues to meet the recognised principles of good governance. At the same time and in the interests of proportionality and value for money, IIAC was reviewed as a Scientific Advisory Committee. I will place a copy of the combined review in the House Library.
