HC Deb 18 May 2004 vol 421 c857W
Mr. Oaten

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what work his Department's Green Minister has undertaken in the last three months in that capacity. [172310]

Fiona Mactaggart

Much of my day-to-day work on community cohesion, race issues, voluntary and community activity and active citizenship directly supports sustainable development. In the last three months, in my capacity as Green Minister, I have also participated in a number of meetings, judged an energy efficiency switch off campaign competition for the department and continued to support the Framework Project established to tackle the environmental targets for the Government Estate, which I launched at a departmental workshop in December last year.

I have also re-launched the Regulatory Impact Assessment within the Department to reflect the greater emphasis on sustainable development.
