§ Mr. Latham
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the current size, and staffing costs, of his multi-disciplinary team providing professional advice on the Community Land Act to the environmental board; and whether he will now disband it, in the interests of saving public sector manpower.
§ Mr. Fox
The Community Land Act advisory team comprises nine members and the total cost is about £86,000 per annum. The functions of the team are under review.
