To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will introduce an urban regeneration company to Gloucester. 
§ Mr. McNulty
Urban regeneration companies (URCs) are established by the relevant local authority, Regional Development Agency, English Partnerships (if appropriate), the private sector and other key partners. It will be for the South West Regional Development Agency and its local partners to decide whether, and when, to bring forward a proposal to central Government for an urban regeneration company in Gloucester.
