Joint Ministerial Committee

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 12 June 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice on which dates the Joint Ministerial Committee has met in plenary form in the last two years; and if she will make a statement. (141556)

I refer the hon. Member for Aylesbury to my written answer of 7 June 2007, Official Report, column 688W. The Joint Ministerial Committee (JMC) exists in both plenary and functional formats, where the latter focuses on specific areas such as health, poverty, the knowledge economy and Europe. There have been no plenary meetings of the JMC over the last two years, but there have been at least 11 meetings of the JMC in its functional format over this same period.
