Ministerial Responsibilities

Volume 449: debated on Tuesday 25 July 2006

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what responsibilities he has in relation to the implementation of Government policy on (a) the international slave trade and (b) the commemoration of the abolition of slavery. (85559)

I do not have any responsibility for the implementation of policy in relation to the international slave trade. However, the hon. Member may be aware that I chair the 2007 Bicentenary Advisory Group, which brings together stakeholders from across the cultural, faith and community sectors to discuss how best we can maximise their organisations’ contributions to the bicentenary.
