§ Norman Baker
: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs for what reason she did not announce the publication of the 4th Annual Report on UK Progress Towards Sustainable Development by means of a oral statement to the House. 
§ Mr. Morley
[holding answer 22 March 2004]If too many announcements are made by oral statement at the end of Questions, Parliamentary business could be hindered.
I announced the publication of this annual report by means of a written statement to the House on 16 March.
