Much thanks for all your replies.

Sorry about that Helen. A couple of similar examples have convinced me that it might be a good idea to attach a word of explanation to the original posting instead of leaving it until this point.
What think you all?

QUANGO = quasi-autonomous non-governmental organisation, a body set up by the government, but not responsible to anyone.
