11. Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister if he will make a statement on the performance of the Standards Board.[145895]

Phil Hope

Ensuring high standards in public life—including in local government—remains a firm commitment of the Government. The Standards Board for England continues to command the Government's full support as it develops to meet the challenges set for it by the Local Government Act 2000. Copies of the Boards Annual Report are available in the Library, and on the Board's website.
