Policy Action Team 18

Volume 450: debated on Monday 23 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what publications have been produced by her Department's Policy Action Team 18; and whether the action team remains in operation. (94647)

Policy Action Team 18 produced one report only, titled “Better Information” published in April 2000. The action team itself no longer exists, however responsibility for the recommendations of the PAT 18 report were taken forward by a partnership of the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and the then Neighbourhood Renewal Unit (NRU) (now part of the Places and Communities Group, DCLG). As a result the Neighbourhood Statistics Service (NeSS) was launched.
