HC Deb 14 February 1972 vol 831 cc34-5W
Mr. Charles Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has reached a decision on the approaches made to him about the venue of the 1978 British Commonwealth Games.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

In this country, the initiative for proposing a British city as host rests with the Commonwealth Games Council who, after a detailed investigation, have recommended Leeds. The Government are prepared to support this recommendation.
