HC Deb 22 April 1994 vol 241 cc705-6W
Mr. Worthington

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has to require local enterprise companies to publish and make available to the public a corporate plan or any other mechanism to increase the information available to the public about their activities.

Mr. Stewart

The local enterprise companies are required by their operating contracts with Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise to publish synopses of their operating and business plans—analogous to a corporate plan—in addition to their annual reports and accounts. They are further required to publicise and hold annually a meeting open to members of the public.
