Supplementary Memorandum by the Department
of the Environment Transport and the Regions
Towards the end of the session, Neil Turner
MP asked about the operation of the Government Office for the
North East (question 1041). I agreed to look into this and attach
a note which, I hope, will reassure the Committee that the Government
Office operates in an integrated, rather than DETR-driven, way.
I understand that the Cabinet Office are preparing
a note on pensions, as Andrew Tyrie MP requested (question 1017).
This will be sent as soon as it is ready.
