HC Deb 02 April 2003 vol 402 c710W
11. Mr. Randall

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will make a statement on the responses that have been received in respect of his proposals for regional referendums. [106169]

Mrs. Roche

The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister is still receiving responses about the level of interest in each English region in holding a referendum on an elected regional assembly. To date we have received about 5,000 responses. We will announce our decisions after the Regional Assemblies (Preparations) Bill has received Royal Assent.
