asked Her Majesty's Government:
How the Home Office Faith Communities Unit relates to the Government's review of their interface with faith communities, which was due to report back at the end of 2003.
Members of the Faith Communities Unit form the secretariat of the steering group which is taking forward the review, and of the working group which reports to the steering group. This role includes drafting papers and report chapters, arranging and minuting meetings, and making arrangements for the publication of the review report which is due in March 2004.
The conclusion of the review was delayed for one month by a decision of the chair, Fiona Mactaggart, to accede to a request from the faith community representatives on the steering group to be allowed more time to finalise the report.
