asked the Prime Minister which matters on which Government action was promised in the Queen's Speech have not yet been brought to a conclusion.

I have been asked to reply.Our legislative programme is close to a successful conclusion. We have not proceeded with two measures in connection with the review of Crown court sentences and corporal punishment in schools. We have pursued with vigour our aims in the fields of foreign affairs, defence and the economy, as announced in the Gracious Speech. Where these have not been of a nature to be brought to a conclusion within a fixed time, action continues.
