HC Deb 22 June 1995 vol 262 cc430-1W
Mr. Norman Hogg

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what changes he proposes to the representation on the hoard of Lanarkshire Development Agency to facilitate representation for Cumbernauld and Kilsyth; whom he will consult; and if he will make a statement. [29748]

Mr. Kynoch

[holding answer 21 June 1995]: The boards of local enterprise companies are appointed by the enterprise bodies, not by my right hon. Friend. The members of the board serve as individuals, not as representatives of any particular interest. Where local enterprise company boundaries are due to change on 1 April 1996, Scottish Enterprise will be taking steps to ensure that the composition of the local enterprise company board is consistent with its new geographical area.
