Sustainable development is now the touchstone of DoE policies, environment secretary John Gummer said when he published his department's annual report last week.

Among the achievements it lists for 1994-95 are the adoption of formal guidelines for relations between central and local government, legislating on white-collar compulsory competitive tendering and having to cap only three councils, the lowest number ever.

The report shows aggregate external finance funded by revenue support grant is falling from £18.5 billion in 1994-95 to £18.3bn in 1995-96. Specific and special grants also fall slightly, while income from non-domestic rates is rising from £10.7bn to £11.4bn.

Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland office reports have also been published.
