HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 c409W
19. Dr. Dickson Mahon

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what response he has received to his offer on behalf of Her Majesty's Government to provide a site in the United Kingdom for the proposed United Nations Programme Secretariat; and if he will suggest sites in Scotland in any further offer.

Mr. Peter Walker

The Secretary General to the Stockholm Conference is evaluating all the offers made, including London, and will be reporting to the General Assembly in the autumn. We are unlikely to have any response till then and I do not think it will be appropriate to make new offers meanwhile.
