Volume 465: debated on Wednesday 24 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many of his Department's public service agreement targets (a) take and (b) do not take account of rural proofing. (159634)

Over the Comprehensive Spending Review 2007 period (2008-11) the Department has lead responsibility for two PSAs; “Maximise Employment Opportunity for All” and “Tackle Poverty and Promote Independence and Well-being in Later Life”.

The Department and its delivery partners remain committed to taking account of rural issues when delivering services and policies in support of both PSAs.
