The hon. Gentleman is painting an interesting picture of the economy in the north-east. I represent a midlands urban seat, and I would appreciate his comments on the fact that in north-east England employment has increased by 1.4% over the past year and unemployment has fallen by 1.5%? The north-east has two local LEPs and three enterprise zones. Is he prepared to talk about those figures?
