Mr. Spring

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what(a) discussions and (b) meetings he had with the Urban Task Force before the publication of its report. [90611]

Mr. Chris Smith

I had a meeting with Lord Rogers and members of the Task Force on 23 March 1999, when they presented their interim report and discussed their emerging findings. We had a further meeting on 16 June 1999 when Lord Rogers and colleagues explained their main conclusions. My officials have also provided information to the secretariat as required.
