I have not held any discussions with the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman on these matters. The Ombudsman is independent of Government and is accountable to Parliament, through the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee, for its performance and the use of its resources. It is primarily resourced by funds approved by the House of Commons through the annual Supply & Appropriation Act.
