APPENDIX 6: Public Bodies and the Regulatory
Executive Agencies followed Sir Robin Ibbs' 'Next
Steps' report (1988), and NDPBs followed Sir Leo Pliatzky's report
on Non-departmental Public Bodies, cmnd 7797 (1980).
The Cabinet Office's publication, Public Bodies (latest
edition 2003), focuses on NDPBs, Advisory NDPBs, Tribunal NDPBs,
Public Corporations and other NDPBs. This is a restricted coverage
as a comprehensive coverage of public bodies in general would
include, for example, Executive Agencies, Non-Ministerial Departments
and Trading Funds.
