To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, with reference to the Levelling Up White Paper: Missions and Metrics Technical Annex, what the current status is of the Missions, in the context of the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill which provides that the first statement of levelling-up missions must come into effect before the end of the period of one month beginning with the day on which this section comes into force.

We set 12 ambitious levelling up ‘missions’ to anchor ambition and provide clarity over the objectives of public policy for the next decade. This includes setting a statutory duty to publish an annual report on progress against all the missions. As set out in the Bill the missions and metrics will be published in a policy document, laid before and debated in Parliament.
