To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Bates on 22 February (HL5517), whether they are able to provide any examples, from the current centrally maintained list of non-departmental central government bodies, of other non-departmental central government bodies that have operated on the basis of expected status rather than actual status confirmed by the National Accounts Classification Committee; and if so, for how long those bodies operated before their status was confirmed.
