He’s right, it’s not a quango, it’s a commercial semi-state body, like ESB or CIE. It actually funds itself by selling things, admittedly supplemented by the exchequer where needed.

On Sean O’Rourke show now…looking at the spending of Quangos on external Consultancy/PR etc.

45 Quango’s disbanded since the Govt came in and 33 new ones created!

Some “bonfire”

I’d like to see an analysis of how much cash (if any) has ben saved


#150

Probably a negative amount, at least in the short term. No-one will be made redundant (the biggest scope for savings in private-sector mergers); existing leases on buildings will have to be honoured; and rebranding and moving people costs money. Any savings are probably 5-10 years out.

I note he says rationalised, not abolished. Some PR flunkie doing his/her job there.
But I thought current spending had remained as high throughout the crash as it was before? I’m sure someone on here had stats about that
