HC Deb 09 April 1976 vol 909 c346W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why the extraordinary audit of the North West Water Authority concerning the purchase of a car number plate has been deferred; and when he now expects it to take place.

Mr. Denis Howell

The way in which the district auditor conducts the extraordinary audit is for him to decide, but I understand that the audit has started, although the hearing of objections will not be arranged until the outcome of the Authority's attempt to sell the number plate is known.
