HC Deb 10 May 1999 vol 331 c57W
Mr. Harvey

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if he will include regional development agencies in future lists of ministerial responsibilities. [82919]

Mr. Kilfoyle

No. Regional Development Agencies are classified as Non-Departmental Public Bodies, which are not included in the List of Ministerial Responsibilities. Instead, details of them will be published annually in future editions of Public Bodies, copies of which will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
