§ 62. Colonel Sir M. Stoddart-Scott
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many parishes there are in the proposed Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester Metropolitan Districts, respectively; how many parishes there are in the proposed Leeds and Bradford Metropolitan Districts; and why there is such a discrepancy in size between the different metropolitan districts proposed.
§ Mr. Graham Page:
There are no parishes in the Birmingham district; one in each of the Liverpool and Manchester districts; and 34 in all in the Bradford and Leeds districts. Differences in size between metropolitan districts arise from the nature of the area.
