Hansard 12 Jan: Col 93

Conservative MP David Curry asked what steps the government envisaged 'to prevent subsidy warfare on inward investment among the development agencies and, notably, between them and the Scottish executive'.

Mr Curry, MP for Skipton and Ripon, asked when the concordat would be published which, allegedly, sets out the rules of the game between Scotland and its parliament and the English regions.

Planning minister Richard Caborn replied: 'Common sense already prevails within the regional development agencies: three of the northern development agencies have already come together in

relation to inward investment from north America. On the wider question of the United Kingdom, we shall return to that matter in a few weeks with the concordat on inward investment that we promised

the house, and we shall deliver on that in the near future'.
