ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report by the British Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) regarding government agencies with overlapping responsibilities. The report proposes that the number of quangos must be reduced to clean up the government-funded training system. According to Michael Davis, UKCES director of strategy and performance, the proposal would remove any unnecessary intermediary bodies.
