§ Mr. Goodlad
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what action he has taken following the findings of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration in Case No. C452/77, Session 1977–78.
§ Mr. Shore
As indicated in the Parliamentary Commissioner's report, the local council was advised that it was for it to decide whether or not to pay an improvement grant in this case. Steps are being taken within my Department to avoid any repetition in the future of the circumstances referred to in paragraph 2 of the Commissioner's report.
