§ Mr. Lawrence
asked the Secretary of State for Trade what is the Government's policy towards citizens advice bureaux; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Sally Oppenheim
As I said in my reply to hon. Friend the Member for Romford (Mr. Neubert) on 12 June, I am anxious to encourage the CAB movement because it is a voluntary service.
I recently met the president and chairman of the National Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux to discuss their future plans. I shall carefully consider any proposals they put to me.
