HC Deb 19 February 1998 vol 306 cc778-9W
Mr. Gareth Thomas

To ask the Prime Minister what plans he has to publish an annual poverty report to measure the performance of the Social Exclusion Unit. [29822]

The Prime Minister

The Government's annual report will include passages on what has been achieved in tackling poverty, and what more needs to be done. I have asked the Social Exclusion Unit to draw up key indicators of social exclusion and recommend how these can be tracked.
