HC Deb 19 April 1995 vol 258 c186W
Mr. Keen

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to acknowledge the centenary celebrations of the international co-operative movement; and if he or one of his Ministers will be taking part in the centenary congress of the International Co-operative Alliance to be held in Manchester in September 1995. [19450]

Mr. Heseltine

No DTI Ministers will attend this event, but the Department expects to be represented at official level. I take this opportunity to wish the alliance a successful centennial congress.
