HC Deb 18 June 2002 vol 387 cc219-20W
Dr. Starkey

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on what subjects and on which dates her Department has consulted organisations representing young people; and if she will list such organisations. [52503]

Mr. Morley

This information is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

The Department is committed to the new core principles for the involvement of children and young people published by the Minister for Young People in November 2001. On 12 June, the Department published an action plan setting out how it will implement these principles and give children and young people a real say in the DEFRA policies and services that affect them.
