star this property answer text <p>The passage of the CDC Bill earlier this year enabled significant, and welcome, parliamentary scrutiny of CDC as an institution, and of the case for recapitalisation of it. Issues raised by Parliamentarians from all sides of the House fed into CDC 2017-21 Strategic Framework, launched earlier this year. As is normal practice, the CDC recapitalisation business case will be subject to government review and quality assurance processes, and will be published once approved by Ministers. My Department will continue to engage closely with Parliamentarians on all aspects of CDC’s work, and we welcome constructive input from all sources.</p><p> </p> more like this
