HC Deb 11 June 2002 vol 386 cc1157-8W
Mr. Edward Davey

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what recent work her Department has undertaken on new corporate identities; and if she will make a statement. [60073]

Miss Melanie Johnson

The independent review of company law set in hand by my Department considered the case for new corporate identities and recommended a new form of incorporation for charities. In addition, this Department's Social Enterprise Unit established a working group on issues surrounding social enterprises. The Government are carefully considering the final report of the company law review.
