HC Deb 28 July 1976 vol 916 c269W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to publish his proposals for the creation of directly elected regional assemblies in England.

Mr. John Silkin

The Government will be considering possible future arrangements for England in the light of the proposals for devolution to Scotland and Wales. My right hon. Friend the Lord President of the Council hopes to make a statement about devolution before the House rises.
