UK Trade and Investment

Volume 490: debated on Monday 30 March 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform who the members are of the UK Trade and Investment UK low-carbon sector advisory group. (265210)

There is not a low-carbon sector advisory group. As low carbon has bearing on all sectors of the economy, it has relevance to all UKTI sector advisory groups. They were consulted during the development of the strategy, as part of a wider engagement with business and organisations. Stakeholders will continue to shape and inform the strategy through the sector advisory groups and in other ways, such as becoming partners to the strategy.

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform who the members are of the UK Trade and Investment UK low-carbon international marketing strategy board. (265211)

A large number of businesses and organisations have contributed to the development of the strategy. Partnerships have been formed with a number of these stakeholders to help shape its further development. Governance arrangements for the strategy are still being considered and a marketing strategy board is one of a possible range of options.

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what the proposed timetable is for the publication of the UK Trade and Investment UK low-carbon international marketing strategy. (265212)

On 25 March UKTI will set out the strategy's overarching proposition and next steps, including developing the strategy across sectors during 2009-10, at a partnership event. The event material will be available on the UKTI website (www.uktradeinvest.gov.uk) after the event.
