Mr. Horam

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the activities of the Green Minister in the Department in financial year 2003–04. [185134]

Fiona Mactaggart

As the Department's Green Minister I take the lead in improving the Department's performance in contributing to wards sustainable development. I do this through meetings with the officials responsible for sustainable development to check progress and give my personal support where necessary. This has included giving a talk at a workshop to launch the Department's Sustainable Development Framework Project and judging a switch off poster competition, as well as attending more formal meetings on sustainable development issues

I am a member of the Ministerial Sub-Committee of Green Ministers.
