HC Deb 25 October 1979 vol 972 c288W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what he anticipates to be the cost of the proposed new urban corporation in Liverpool during its first year of operation.

Mr. Heseltine

The precise cost of the proposed Merseyside urban development corporation in its first year of operation will depend upon the range of powers afforded to it, its exact area and the pattern of land acquisition. No decisions have yet been taken on this matter.
