HC Deb 25 April 1972 vol 835 c265W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ensure that, when the final decisions are taken in the disposal of the Carlisle and District State Management Scheme, a statement will be made to the House of Commons before being committed to outside interests.

Mr. Carlisle

This would not be appropriate under the procedure of sale by public tender which is to be adopted. My right hon. Friend proposes to inform the House of successful tenders as soon as practicable after their acceptance has been notified.
