§ Mr. Simon Coombs
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment when he intends to update the index to the explanatory material on how his Department deals with the public which he first made available last July.
§ Mr. Robert B. Jones
I have today made available the first update of the index to the explanatory material on my Department's dealings with the public. This index will continue to be regularly updated, demonstrating my Department's commitment to open government. I have placed a copy of the index in the Library of the House and it is also available from my Department's libraries and from the Government offices for the regions.
