HC Deb 31 March 1971 vol 814 c368W
114. Mr. Mackie

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will advise the London Borough of Enfield to refrain from dismantling further their direct-labour building force in view of its record of service to the borough over 45 years, and its repeated ability successfully to compete in open tender with other builders.

Mr. Channon

This is a matter entirely for the decision of the local authority.
