§ Ms. Armstrong
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he has completed his review of regional policy; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
My right hon. and noble Friend the Secretary of State and I have been reviewing all our Department's activities since we were appointed to our present posts and we will continue to do so. We have recently established new objectives for the Department and we are considering the best application of those objectives in the field of regional policy.
