Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 8 November 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the (a) dates and (b) locations were of each event he has held as part of the public debate on the Comprehensive Spending Review. (97964)

The Chancellor is keen to ensure the Comprehensive Spending Review is fully informed by widespread public engagement on the long-term challenges facing the UK. To analyse these challenges, the Government have undertaken extensive consultation with third sector organizations, services users, frontline professionals, businesses, think-tanks and academics among others. We will be publishing our analysis of the long-term challenges facing the UK later this year, and this will provide the basis for further debate.
