§ Mr. Latham
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will list the public engagements or meetings with persons outside the Government or the Civil Service which he has held in his capacity as Minister responsible for the inner cities since 13 January.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
I have had many meetings with business men and organisations involved in inner city regeneration including Business in the Community, the CBI and the Industrial Society. These meetings have shown that there is a range of ways in which companies, voluntary organisations and local communities can contribute constructively to making inner cities better places in which to live, work and invest.
