HC Deb 15 March 1976 vol 907 cc376-7W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the local authorities which have consulted his Department with a view to allowing a grand prix motor race to take place on the public highway; and what advice he has given.

Mr. Denis Howell

The only such proposal was that of the Birmingham City Council contained in the recent West Midland County Council Bill. The Government's view on that proposal was indicated by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State, the Member for Widnes (Mr. Oakes), in the Second Reading debate 11th February 1976.—[Vol. 905, c. 541.]
