HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 c101W
58. Mr. Cormack

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has completed his consultations on derelict land clearance with the six county councils which have the worst problems.

Mr. Graham Page

My right hon. Friend has already visited Cumberland, Durham, Lancashire and Northumberland and will be visiting Derbyshire and the West Riding early next year.

109. Mr. Laurance Reed

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what has been the outcome of his consultations with Lancashire County Council over the clearance of derelict land in the county.

Mr. Graham Page

Local authorities have been made more aware of the need to make increased use of the generous grants which are available. They have been asked to submit realistic six-year programmes and to aim at clearing their existing problems within 10 years.
