Regional Government

Volume 464: debated on Monday 8 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what her Department's definition is of (a) sub-national and (b) sub-regional governance. (153801)

The Review of sub-national economic development and regeneration was published on 17 July 2007. For the purpose of the Review, "sub-national" was taken to include regional, sub-regional and local levels. Sub-regional governance in this context refers to any arrangement involving more than one, but fewer than every, local authority in a single region (as defined in the Regional Development Agencies Act 1998, Schedule 1—Regions).
