§ Mr. Butcher
My right hon. and learned Friend has no plans to meet the secretary of the Association of Innovation Centre Executives, Dr. Donaldson. However, I recently met Dr. Donaldson and other members of AICE to discuss the work of innovation centres, and ways in 265W which these centres might be able to contribute to DTI's new innovation policies. I have agreed to visit the northeast innovation centre later in the year.
