The government will today appoint more than 50 business leaders to the boards of the English regional development agencies it plans to create next April.

The Financial TImes (p8) reports that these will represent one of the biggest groups of business appointments to official bodies ever announced.

Business people will comprise just over half of the 100-plus RDA board appointments to be announced by Richard Caborn, minister for the regions.

The rest will be councillors from the main parties, trade unionists, people from the voluntary sector, and from further and higher education.

Mr Caborn will set the RDAs the task of drawing up an economic strategy by next October. He will tour regional bodies in the New Year, encouraging them to co-operate in making the new policy work.
