HC Deb 09 February 1995 vol 254 c417W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he last met representatives of local authorities to discuss defence diversification.

Mr. Freeman

[holding answer 20 December 1994]: In the course of implementing the decisions of the recent defence costs study, local authorities' representatives are consulted as and when necessary to facilitate, where possible, productive use of sites following withdrawal of my Department's activity.

The suitability of specific schemes for funding under the EC's Konver programme is a matter for the DTI.
