Disadvantaged: Nottingham

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what progress has been made since the visit of her team to Nottingham on 5 March in convening a Joint National-Local Steering Group on Early Intervention in Nottingham; and if she will make a statement. (139872)

I am keen to support Nottingham’s proposals for developing the idea of ‘early intervention city’. My officials have already attended a meeting convened by One Nottingham to brief them on the national social exclusion policy context and they have indicated that they will attend quarterly steering groups convened by local partners. Other relevant Departments will also offer support to One Nottingham.
