§ Mr. Lidington
To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what action he intends to take to ensure his proposals in Sustainable Communities comply with the EU Strategic Environmental Impact Assessment Directive. 
§ Keith Hill
The Communities Plan is a programme of work drawing together numerous Delivery Programmes. As such, it does not itself have an Environmental Impact Assessment or a Strategic Environmental Assessment. As appropriate, individual elements of the Plan will be subject to Strategic Environmental Assessment or an Environmental Impact Assessment at suitable points in the delivery process.
