§ Mr. McWilliam
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will review each of his Department circulars issued to local authorities which are still in force; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Raynsford
Each circular issued by my Department is kept under review and updated, amended or replaced when necessary. A one-off review of all the Department's circulars currently in force would therefore be inappropriate and, in any case, would not be feasible on resource grounds.
