Advisory Committee on National Historic Ships to continue

This committee wass one of those whose abolition was announced in the October 2010 `bonfire of the quangos’.

DCMS has now confirmed that the important work carried out by the Advisory Committee on National Historic Ships will continue. National Historic Ships is to be de-classified as an advisory non-departmental public body, not abolished, and will continue to act as ‘the official voice for historic vessels in the UK’ in a new form. DCMS officials and National Historic Ships will work closely with key stakeholders in order to set up an organisation which will meet the needs of government and the historic ships sector as a vital strand in the maritime heritage of the United Kingdom.
