Information on the number, remit and membership of taskforces, ad-hoc advisory groups and reviews has been published by the Cabinet Office on a regular basis. The first report was published on 11 January 2000 and gives information for the period between 1 May 1997 to 31 October 1999. A second report was published on 27 July 2000 and covered the period 1 November 1999 to 30 April 2000. A third report was published on 13 December 2000 covering the period 1 May 2000 to 31 October 2000. The most recent report: "Task Forces, Ad Hoc Advisory Groups and Reviews", was issued in October 2001. Copies of these reports have been placed in the Libraries of the House.

Commonwealth Games

Dr. Cable: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much Government funding is being made available to Manchester to support the Commonwealth Games. [34763]

Mr. Caborn: The Government announced on 2 July 2001 up to £30 million in support for the Games. This was part of the £80 million in additional funding and £25 million contingency fund for the Games made up of funds from Manchester city council, Sport England and Government announced on the same day. We have also given a further £10.5 million towards the costs of the opening and closing ceremonies. This brings Government assistance to the Games to a total of £40.5 million.


Mrs. Dean: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (1) what estimate she has made of the impact on the number of public houses if the number of gaming machines is restricted as recommended by the Budd report; [34742]

Mr. Caborn: We have made no estimates. The Government published the report of the independent Gambling Review Body, chaired by Sir Alan Budd, in July last year and have been considering all the comments on it received since then. These include representations which argue that there would be adverse consequences for the gaming machines industry and the licensed trade if the Government were fully to implement the report's recommendations about gaming machines in pubs.

I expect that we will be in a position to announce our conclusions within the next two months.
