To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what new measures he is implementing to improve economic prospects in North-east Wales. 
§ Mr. Hain
"Pathway to Prosperity—An Economic Agenda for Wales" was published last July. It contained a wide range of measures for modernising and raising the competitiveness of the Welsh economy including North East Wales. These include:
- An Entrepreneurship Action Plan
- Know How Wales
- Millennium Bug Support
- Strengthening Business Connect.
Numerous measures have been announced since that time, including:

- Connect for a Better Business.
In future this will become the responsibility of the National Assembly.
