asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has taken any recent action to implement the recommendations of the Audit Commission's report on capital spending in local government.

Before the report was published, the Government were already engaged in discussions with the Local Authority Associations about the future of the system for controlling local authority capital expenditure. I have welcomed the report as a very useful input to that work, which is still going on.
