HC Deb 22 June 1972 vol 839 c165W
Mr. Arthur Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the requirement in the Local Authorities (Goods and Services) Act, 1970, that local authorities carrying out maintenance work by direct labour on behalf of other public authorities should keep separate trading accounts of these activities will be binding on the new local authorities after reorganisation; and whether he will extend the requirement to cover local authority direct labour building in their own areas.

Mr. Graham Page

The answer to the first part of the question is Yes, to the second part, No.
