Question written on 01/04/2003

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what support his Department has given to the Accreditation Awareness Campaign run by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service.

Answered by Christopher Leslie

The former Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions, invited the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to present its range of services to its staff in November 2001. That Department then sent UKAS a copy of its Business Plan setting out its main areas of work and invited UKAS to make contact with its officials where it perceived there was a mutual benefit.
