§ 66. Mr. Waller
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied with the operation of the inner cities partnership committees.
§ Mr. King
Our initial experience of the partnership committees was that they tended to be too large, involved a greater level of detail than was necessary, and met more frequently than was really appropriate. We have, therefore, made clear our determination that in future partnership meetings should be limited in number, less bureaucratic and less frequent.
§ Mr. Heseltine
I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave earlier today to my660W hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Wavertree (Mr. Steen).
