The provisions in the Public Bodies Bill provide powers to Ministers to make reforms to a range of public bodies. Where a reform is proposed to a body listed in the Bill's schedules, Ministers are required to undertake a consultation process. Representations are most appropriately made during the consultation process. The Bill has now completed Third Reading in both Houses. During the passage of the Bill, contributions to debates were made by many Members of both Houses and where representations have been made to me I have ensured they are passed to the relevant Department.
