HC Deb 23 March 1977 vol 928 c556W
Mrs. Chalker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will pay special attention to the pockets of deprivation on the edges of decaying inner-city areas such as Wallasey and Birkenhead in his consideration of the reports on inner-city stress areas.

Mr. Shore

I must ask the hon. Member to await the Government's statement on inner-city policy which is likely to be made next month.
