§ Mr. Pattie
The publication of the policy document, "Design for Design: a Framework for Action", has attracted comments from representative bodies and individuals which my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary will take fully into account in his deliberations about future priorities and initiatives. The vast majority welcomed this policy statement, and requests for the document have been received from many parts of the world.
A design strategy group was established to consider the most effective ways of meeting the objectives described in the document. The group has produced a constructive report, which we have welcomed, and my hon. Friend is now considering its recommendations.
