HC Deb 04 July 1994 vol 246 c80W
39. Mr. Rowe

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what charter mark winners are doing to help advance charter principles in the public sector.

Mr. David Davis

Charter mark winners are a constant example to others in the public sector of the successful application of the citizens charter principles. The eight winners in Kent have been particularly helpful in acting as an inspiration to other organisations to implement the charter principles and improve services.

On a national basis, I am pleased to be able to say that 520 applications have been received for this year's charter mark scheme.
