Regional Development Agencies: Mid-Year Results

Volume 697: debated on Monday 17 December 2007

My right honourable friend the Minister for State for Competitiveness (Stephen Timms) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I have published the reported mid-year output results for 2007-08 for England's regional development agencies.

The data show the progress made by the regional development agencies between April and September 2007 in delivering against the core output targets set in RDA corporate plans for 2005-08. The figures cover employment creation and support, business creation and support, leverage of public and private sector infrastructure investment, brownfield land reclamation/redevelopment, and skills development.

I am placing copies of the mid-year RDA output figures in the Library of the House, and the results have also been placed on the BERR website at
