Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what was the purpose of the establishment of the Foreign Policy Centre; and what criteria will be applied to judge its success annually. [97146]

Mr. Robin Cook

The Foreign Policy Centre is independent of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and has received no money from the Department. The purpose of its establishment and the criteria for judging its success are matters for the Foreign Policy Centre.
