To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if she will make a statement on the Better Government for Older People initiative. [106601]

Mr. Ian McCartney

The Better Government for Older People programme is continuing to make good progress towards delivering the improved public services that older people deserve.

Those involved in its 28 pilot projects, which involve nearly 300 partner organisations, are making an invaluable contribution to this work. We have decided to extend the programme until December 2000 to make Sure its lessons are widely learned across the public sector.
