§ Mr. French
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what are her plans for the work of the Department in 1995–96 and beyond. 
§ Mrs. Virginia Bottomley
I have agreed a statement of the aims, goals and priorities for my Department for 1995–96 and subsequent years.
The statement covers the whole range of the Department's work relating to health and social services, European Union and other international issues, and internal management.
The statement includes our specific priorities for the National Health Service Executive, which are taken forward in more detail in the NHS Executive's business plan for 1995–96, approved by the NHS Policy Board, and which was published on 5 April 1995.
Copies of the statement will be placed in the Library.
