Local Spending Reports

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 5 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the reason is for the time taken by her Department to publish a consultation document on local spending reports. (253889)

The Sustainable Communities Act 2007 requires the Secretary of State to make arrangements for the production of local spending reports; to make the first arrangements before 23 April 2009; and to consult affected persons before doing so. This is a complex task and we have been working across Government to map available information. We aim to consult shortly.
