HC Deb 09 February 1998 vol 306 cc4-5W
Miss McIntosh

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what recent representations he has received on the structure of regional development agencies. [27686]

Mr. Caborn

Since the publication in December of the White Paper, "Building Partnerships for Prosperity", and of the Regional Development Agencies Bill, I have received a number of letters about various matters relating to RDAs. In addition, I have regularly had meetings with interested parties, both in London and in the regions, to hear at first hand what people think about our proposals.
