To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what progress is being made with Government inner city policies in Sheffield.

Sheffield will benefit directly from the inner city measures announced by the Prime Minister and other Ministers on 7 March. In particular the new urban development corporation in the lower Don Valley will unlock the enormous potential of some 2,000 acres of blighted land to the north-east of the city centre.
