HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 c19W
Mr. Arthur Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the code of practice for district and private auditors which he proposes to introduce will include guidance on the audit of local authority direct labour departments; and when he proposes to introduce it.

Mr. Graham Page

The code of practice, which was published on 12th April, 1972, sets out general guidance about the audit of all accounts of local authorities. Its provisions will be effective from the operative date of the audit provisions in Part VIII of the Local Government Bill.
