To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what assessment he has made of the likely contribution of town and parish councils to efforts to encourage economic growth.

My Department has made no such assessment. The activities of town and parish councils are one of the many local factors that can affect an area's economic growth, and we expect all such councils to support local enterprise, local firms and local jobs.
