Select Committee on Welsh Affairs Fourth Special Report

Appendix 1

Letter to the Chairman of the Committee from the Secretary of State for Wales.

I am pleased to enclose the Government response to your report on European Structural Funds. This is in the form of a memorandum, which I have agreed with my Ministerial colleagues in the Treasury, Department of Trade and Industry, Department for Education and Employment, Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions, Scotland Office and Northern Ireland Office.

Many of the conclusions and recommendations fall within the remit of the National Assembly for Wales, and I know that the First Secretary submitted his response on 7 March. One recommendation also falls jointly to the Government and the National Assembly, and work to address this recommendation is being taken forward separately.
