§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what changes he proposes in the internal structure of the Welsh Development Agency; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Redwood
The chairman of the Welsh Development Agency announced in October that he is undertaking a comprehensive review of the agency's organisation and management structure.
While the issues of organisation and management are essentially matters for the agency, its senior management structure is subject to approval and the agency will be submitting its proposals shortly.
Because of the chairman's close involvement in this review and its implementation I have temporarily increased his time commitment from two and a half days per week to four days per week.
