To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs who will make up the United Kingdom's delegation to the Rio+10 Summit in Johannesburg. [66742]

Mr. Meacher

We are currently in the process of considering the delegation for the forthcoming World Summit on Sustainable Development but the final decision on the make up of the delegation will rest with the Prime Minister. However, both the Prime Minister and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State will attend the summit.

We have been working closely with various stakeholder groups in our preparations for World Summit on Sustainable Development and representatives have been part of the UK delegation at previous preparatory meetings for WSSD. This will continue to be the case for the summit itself.
