Devolution: Codes of Practice

Volume 465: debated on Tuesday 23 October 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what discussions there were between Government Ministers and Ministers of devolved Administrations on the preparation of the Ministerial Codes of those Administrations. (159710)

Preparation of guidance documents for the devolved Administrations, including the Ministerial Codes of those Administrations, is a matter for the Administrations themselves.

Detail of Ministers' contact with their counterparts in the devolved Administrations is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. There has been no contact between Cabinet Office Ministers and Ministers in the devolved Administrations about the preparation of their Ministerial Codes.
