The Coalition: together in the national interest

This Mid-Term Review document provides an update on the progress we are making in implementing our Programme for Government. For a definitive account, this document should be considered alongside the quarterly reports that are published on progress against the commitments in departmental business plans.


The Government fully supports the devolution of powers to Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

As a result of devolution, many decisions made by UK Ministers or in the Westminster Parliament now apply to England only. The Northern Ireland Executive, the Scottish Government and the Welsh Government make their own policy on these devolved issues. This document therefore sets out the agreed priorities for the Coalition Government in Westminster.
