HC Deb 03 July 2002 vol 388 cc338-9W
Sue Doughty

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer who his Department's Green Minister is; when they (a) have attended and (b) plan to attend meetings of the Green Ministers' Committee; what the outcomes of meetings were for his Department's activities; and if he will make a statement. [65983]

John Healey

I am HM Treasury's Green Minister. I was appointed to the ENV(G) committee in June this year.

Following the general election in June 2001, the previously informal Green Ministers Committee was upgraded to a Cabinet Sub-Committee of ENV and it is established practice under exemption 2 of Part II of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information not to disclose information relating to the proceedings of Cabinet Committees. Therefore I cannot relate progress or outcomes by my Department to anything that has been discussed.
