Local Better Regulation Office

Volume 476: debated on Monday 19 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform whether the Local Better Regulation Office will set performance (a) indicators and (b) targets for local authorities trading standards and environmental health divisions. (202950)

LBRO will not set performance indicators or performance targets for local authorities. In order to ensure that LBRO understands performance issues in relation to its remit, the organisation is working closely with the Department of Communities and Local Government so that any LBRO projects which require the collection and/or analysis of performance information draw on and complement performance data available within the new performance framework for local government.
