HC Deb 17 April 1980 vol 982 cc686-7W
Mr. Latham

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he has now reviewed the future programme of work of his Land Economy Directorate; with what result; and what is the authorised staffing cost budget for it during 1980–81.

Mr. Fox

The directorate's primary responsibility is to provide this Department and the Department of Transport with expert advice on a wide range of issues in the field of land use and development. Its programme of work is under constant review. The estimated staff costs for 1980–81 are about £230,000.
