HC Deb 23 March 1971 vol 814 c94W
Mr. Arthur Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to announce the appointment of a Staff Commission under paragraph 51 of Command Paper No. 4584, Local Government in England; and if it is his policy that independent assessors should be appointed to ensure the safeguarding of staff interests.

Mr. Peter Walker

It is my intention to establish the staff commission at the earliest possible moment. Legislation will be required before it can be established formally.
