To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if he will make a statement about progress with the development of the Better Government for Older People initiative. 
§ Mr. Kilfoyle
The Better Government for Older People initiative, a practical example of our commitment to modernising government, has important lessons to teach about working in partnership, and improving services through listening to the views of users and responding to708W their needs. Yesterday, we launched a Learning Network to cascade experience from the pilots. Many more local authorities, along with older people's organisations, and the academic world, can now be involved in this learning process through access to a database of good practice, and regular bulletins and workshops on developments across the programme.
