HC Deb 09 July 2002 vol 388 c847W
Mrs. Spelman

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs which Government Ministers will attend the World Summit on Sustainable Development. [67016]

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, my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and I will attend the summit. Ministerial representation at the summit will reflect the cross cutting nature of sustainable development.
