§ Mr. Matthew Taylor
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if public service agreement targets will be set for each indicator in the publication "Quality of Life Counts". 
§ Mr. Andrew Smith
The indicators in "Quality of Life Counts" will be an important benchmark against which progress in key areas of sustainable development can be assessed. The Government will publish new Public Service Agreements as part of the outcome of the 2000 Spending Review in July. These PSAs will include targets for improvement in many of the areas contributing to progress against the indicators in "Quality of Life Counts". Some of the wider indicators may be more appropriately related to departmental aims and objectives.
