HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 c96W
46. Mr. Laurance Reed

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement about the siting of local authority headquarters for the new counties.

Mr. Graham Page

It will be entirely for each of the new county councils to decide on the location of their headquarters after they have been elected in 1973. Similarly, each of the new district councils will settle for themselves where their headquarters will be.
