holding answer 7 February 2011

The Department for Transport is in the early stages of developing a framework for assessing applications for employee co-operatives.

A small number of officials from the Department's Corporate Group and General Counsel's Office have been involved with this work to date. They are working closely with the Cabinet Office, which is developing central guidance for Departments. Wider involvement of officials across the Department will follow with the finalisation of this guidance.
