§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what discussions he has had with(a) the chairman of the Welsh Development Agency and (b) other bodies regarding amending his Department's guidelines for the work of the Welsh Development Agency in respect of inward investment; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Hague
With the approval of the Treasury, my Department issued guidelines to the Welsh Development Agency for its inward investment activities in March 1995. An amendment to those guidelines, covering United Kingdom relocations, was agreed and issued in June 1995 and a copy placed in the Library of the House.
The guidelines are currently being reviewed with the agency. Should it be necessary to make further amendments, or issue revised guidelines, a copy will be placed in the Library of the House.
