LETTER FROM COUNCIL ON THE EDUCATION OF DIS

ADVANTAGED CHILDREN

NATIONAL ADVISORY COUNCIL ON THE EDUCATION

OF DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN,

Washington, D.C., August 31, 1966 Hon. EDWARD V. LONG, U.S. Senate, Washington, D.C.

DEAR MR. Long: This is in response to your inquiry concerning the amount of information which Government agencies currently maintain on individuals. The Council reports to the President about the effectiveness of education programs for the disadvantaged and in this capacity does not concern itself with records on individuals. We do inspect résumés of people who apply to us for consultant positions, but this is the only type of information on individuals we consider. Their résumés give the person's educational background, publications, and experience with disadvantaged children. Sincerely yours,

MICHAEL W. KIRST
Assistant Director

U.S. Senate, Washington, D.C. DEAR SENATOR LONG: I have received your letter of August 11 transmitting a questionnaire of the Subcommittee on Administrative Practice and Procedure concerning the amount, nature, and use of information which Government agencies currently maintain on individuals.

It is not necessary to the discharge of the Council's functions to collect information on individuals, and no such information is collected.

I hope this reply will be of assistance to the subcommittee in its consideration of this question. Very truly yours,

CHARLES R. HARLEY, Secretary, National Advisory Council on International Monetary

and Financial Policies.
