Volume 483: debated on Tuesday 18 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what recent discussions she has had on the establishment of eco-towns. (236042)

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, the Minister for Housing and Planning and myself have meetings with many external organisations and individuals on a wide range of subjects every week, and some of these will include discussion of eco-towns policy. As part of the Department's business we also have discussions with officials about the eco-towns policy, but details of these are not disclosed as to do so could harm the frankness and candour of internal discussion.
