I do not know if the Minister can be pressed on this point, but he just said “are likely”. The director is a new post. We have raised considerable concerns about the director, including the issue of independence and the importance of the post holder being seen to be independent. The LSC is an established body now. Can the Minister give an assurance that decisions by the director will be made in writing?
