MP calls for debate on co-operative models for delivering public services
7th July 2011
James Morris calls for a Parliamentary debate on the development of co-operative and mutual models for the delivery of public sector services.
James Morris (Halesowen and Rowley Regis) (Con): The Leader of the House will be aware that we are currently in co-operatives fortnight. May we have an urgent debate about the importance of developing co-operative and mutual models, particularly for the delivery of public sector services?
Sir George Young: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, and I would like to be as co-operative as I can. The coalition agreement sets out commitments to public service mutuals that are being taken forward by the Cabinet Office, and I hope that there might be an initiative in that direction before the House rises.
