GLA Triennial Review Announced
10th September 2013
On 10 September 2013, the Minister of State for Agriculture and Food, David Heath, announced the start of the Triennial Review of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority (GLA). The Written Ministerial Statement announcing the Review and the Terms of Reference are included below.
This is part of government’s rolling programme of Triennial Reviews of public bodies to consider whether the functions carried out by the body are still required and whether the delivery model is right and offers value for money.
GLA is a non-departmental public body which was set up in 2005 to protect workers from exploitation. The Government has previously determined that role of GLA is important and its form is appropriate. This Triennial Review provides an opportunity to examine and confirm those conclusions where appropriate and to focus on ensuring that the governance arrangements of GLA are as effective as possible.
Therefore, this Review will take account of all evidence and stakeholder responses available from previous reviews – including through the Employment Theme of the Government’s Red Tape Challenge process and the recent consultation on governance arrangements.
Please provide any further information to feed in to the findings of this Triennial Review to the Triennial Reviews Team using the contact details below.
