Regional Development Agencies: Political Impartiality

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 9 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what requirements in respect of political impartiality there are on directors of regional development agencies; and if she will make a statement. (240261)

I have been asked to reply.

Each regional development agency has a code of practice for all staff, including directors and board members, in line with the model code produced by the Cabinet Office. All staff are required to conduct themselves with integrity and impartiality, whatever their personal political views.
