New Inquiry : the work of Advantage West Midlands

Evidence session: 10.15am, Mon 14 Dec, Offices of Advantage West Midlands, Birmingham

The West Midlands Regional Select Committee of the House of Commons is to conduct a short inquiry into the work of Advantage West Midlands - the regional development agency. The Committee will be taking oral evidence from Advantage West Midlands on its Annual Report and future plans in Birmingham on Monday 14 December.

The Committee welcomes written submissions regarding the work of Advantage West Midlands, which should arrive by noon on Wednesday 9 December 2009. These submissions will assist the Committee in preparing for the meeting on 14 December, and may be published alongside the transcript of the meeting.

Please note

A copy of the submission should be sent by e-mail to regionalcommittees@parliament.uk and marked "West Midlands Regional Committee Inquiry". The Committee's strong preference is for submissions in electronic form, although hard copy originals will be accepted and should be sent to Emma Sawyer, Senior Committee Assistant, at:

Regional Committees
House of Commons
7 Millbank
London SW1P 3JA

Each submission should:

€ be no more than 3,000 words in length;
€ begin with a short summary in bullet point form;
€ have numbered paragraphs; and
€ (if in electronic form) be in Word format or a rich text format with as little use of colour or logos as possible.

For Data Protection purposes, it would be helpful if individuals submitting written evidence send their contact details separately in a covering letter. You should be aware that there may be circumstances in which the House of Commons will be required to communicate information to third parties on request, in order to comply with its obligations under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please supply a postal address so that a copy of the Committee's report can be sent to you upon publication.

A guide for written submissions to Select Committees may be found on the parliamentary website at: http://www.parliament.uk/documents/upload/witnessguide.pdf

Please also note that once submitted, evidence is the property of the Committee. The Committee will normally, although not always, choose to make public the written evidence it receives, by publishing it on the internet (where it will be searchable), by printing it or by making it available through the Parliamentary Archives. If there is any information you believe to be sensitive you should highlight it and explain what harm you believe would result from its disclosure. The Committee will take this into account in deciding whether to publish or further disclose the evidence.
