§ Mr. Horam
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland which United Kingdom commitments arising from the World Summit on Sustainable Development(a) have been incorporated into the Department's existing delivery plan for Service Delivery Agreements and (b) will be incorporated in its delivery plan for Service Delivery Agreements in advance of the 2004 Spending Review. 
§ Mr. Paul Murphy
The Programme for Government of the Northern Ireland Office and the Northern Ireland Executive included acknowledgement of, and commitment to, Sustainable Development issues and this has been reflected in the 2002/03 Service Delivery Agreements of the Northern Ireland Office and individual Northern Ireland departments.
Although the devolved institutions are currently suspended the overall policy and practice of reflecting sustainable development issues and commitments continues under the current interim arrangements.
