HC Deb 22 April 1975 vol 890 cc265-6W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) if he will make a statement on the recent visit of the Minister of Housing to Liverpool;

(2) if he will make a statement on the working of the Liverpool Inner Area Housing Study Group of which he recently took the chair.

Mr. Freeson

On 10th April I was in Liverpool to chair a meeting of the steering committee of the Liverpool Inner Area Study. The study is investigating, by way of research and of action projects, the linked environmental social and economic problems of one part of the inner area of Liverpool. It is being carried out by consultants and is directed by a steering committee of local authority members under my chairmanship. The committee considered a review by the consultants of the findings of the study so far and approved their programme of work for the final phase of the study. Both these documents will be published.
