To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what level of co-operation he is receiving from the private sector with regard to inner-city policies.
I have been greatly encouraged by the response from the private sector to the action for cities drive launched by the Prime Minister on 7 March. I took part this morning in a breakfast presentation to around 200 business leaders in Newcastle. This was the first of a series of presentations to stimulate the involvement of companies in urban regeneration.
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he has any plans to visit Bermondsey to discuss his inner cities policy.
I have no such plans at the moment.
