Government quango cull
The government has announced a huge cull of quangos in a move it says will improve accountability and cut costs.
It will axe 192 of the public bodies - such as the Film Council and the Audit Commission - while 118 will be merged.
The future of some bodies is still under consideration but 380 will definitely be kept,the list says.
Minister Francis Maude could not confirm how many jobs would be lost. Labour's Liam Byrne said the cull could end up costing more than it saved.
