Mr. Edward Taylor
No. Most authorities have more than one commencing date and my right hon. Friend's Department's Circular No. 735 of 23rd September, 1969, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy, sets out the circumstances in which he would be prepared to accept a proposal from an authority for the introduction of a single date.
