HC Deb 15 January 1974 vol 867 cc66-7W
Mr. Michael Cocks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how the £15 million included in the relevant expenditure forecasts for 1974–75 to take account of the cost of establishing the new authorities and of paying the new members' attendance allowances is divided between these two items.

Mr. Graham Page

The local authority associations in discussions with my Department produced a broad overall assessment of cost. This was not broken down into separate parts.
