§ Lord Balniel
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will make a statement about his announced intention to transfer on 1st April the assets of the Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield Development Corporation, in view of the fact that no Order implementing this decision has been laid before Parliament.
