SIA not to be abolished

On March 24 the House of Lords passed an amendment to the Public Bodies Bill to take the SIA (Security Industry Authority) out of the list of quangos to be abolished.

However, the Government has stressed this does not mean there has been a change in policy as it remains their intention to change the form of the SIA, but that this can be best achieved by new legislation.

The Government's aim is to have the new organisation in place by the end of 2013.
