§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what discussions he has had with trade unions concerning the future of the Property Services Agency offices in Wales and their strategic involvement in coping with civil emergencies and disasters.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
None; discussion with the trade unions representing the staff of the Property Services Agency is the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment. However, my Department is in touch with the Property Services Agency and will be consulted before any decisions of significance for employment in Wales are taken.
