Decisions about staffing have not yet been taken, as these will be for the organisation that takes over the Public Lending Right (PLR) functions and will depend on how it chooses to fulfil those functions. The Department is running a public consultation about the future administration of the scheme, which is open until 30 July 2012, and decisions about the transfer of functions to another body are subject to that consultation.
