§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions, pursuant to the letter of 16 July MR/PSO/8216/98, what is his timetable for moving towards the electronic publishing of headline indicators. 
§ Mr. Meacher
My Department plans to publish proposals for a core set of indicators of Sustainable Development in the Autumn. A final set of indicators, following consultation on the proposals, will be published alongside the Sustainable Development Strategy itself, around the turn of the year. Electronic publication of the core indicators will follow as soon as practicable thereafter, probably in the Spring of 1999.
