§ Mr. Madden
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment on what date the Layfield Committee of Inquiry into the Rating System will report; and when he expects to make a statement on the committee's recommendations.
§ Mr. John Silkin
As my right hon. Friend told the House on 15th December, he now expects to receive the report early in the New Year. He will arrange for it to be published as soon as practicable after he has received it.—[Vol. 902, c. 990.]
