HC Deb 17 December 1975 vol 902 c635W
Mr. Grist

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he will introduce a Miscellaneous Provisions Bill relating to local authority functions.

Mr. John Silkin

A Bill comprising some 30 non-controversial clauses, well precedented in local legislation, has been drafted and is ready for introduction. The actual timing of introduction and the method of handling in this House are under consideration at the moment. I am not yet in a position to make a forecast of the date.
