Q19.

asked the Prime Minister whether she will designate a Minister with overall responsibility for rural affairs.

No. I set out the Government's policy towards rural areas in the answer given to my hon. Friend the Member for Eye (Mr. Gummer) on 26th July, and the Secretary of State for the Environment has special regard to this in the course of his responsibility for regional policy.
