§ 25. Mr. Blizzard
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what her objectives are for the reform of EU structural funds. 
§ Mrs. Roche
We welcome the publication of the draft regulations for Structural and Cohesion Funds—which are part of the wider Agenda 2000 reform package.
Our overriding concern in the long negotiation ahead is to ensure that these draft regulations are affordable, durable and fair overall, particularly to the UK.
