Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (1) whether she or her Ministers will agree to meet members of the public from each selected eco-town site to discuss the relevant eco-town proposal; and if she will make a statement; (227541)

(2) what meetings she and the Minister of State for Housing have had on eco-towns since the latter's appointment; and if she will make a statement.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer that I gave to the hon. Member for Beckenham (Mrs. Lait) of 6 October 2008, Official Report, column 308W. There have been no further visits to eco-town locations since the Housing Minister's recent appointment on 3 October. My right hon. Friend the Member for Don Valley (Caroline Flint) and I met residents from areas affected by eco-towns in the House on 30 June 2008.
