HC Deb 11 November 1997 vol 300 c482W
Ms Jennifer Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what action he will take to include the voluntary sector in the preliminary planning for a Regional Development Agency in the west midlands. [14724]

Mr. Caborn

In taking forward our proposals for Regional Development Agencies in England, we have closely involved all the key stakeholders in each region, including those from the voluntary sector. Detailed arrangements for the Regional Development Agencies will be set out in a White Paper on England's regions to be published in the next few weeks.
