§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the joint discussion document on fiscal and other changes to promote volunteering and community service will be published; and if it will then be subject to consulation. 
§ Mr. Andrew Smith
The Government believes that voluntary and community service plays a key role in building strong and cohesive communities. As the Chancellor announced in Budget 2002, a joint discussion document by HM Treasury and the Home Office will be published later this year on how best we can promote and develop voluntary and community service.
