HC Deb 07 December 1971 vol 827 c286W
45. Mr. Fernyhough

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the high level of unemployment in the North-East, he will agree to receive at No. 10 Downing Street a deputation of civic heads of North-East local authorities.

Mr. Peter Walker

I would be willing to receive such a deputation at a suitable time and place.
