HC Deb 23 January 1981 vol 997 c264W
Mr. Bob Dunn

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish in the Official Report the title and date of all items of legislation enacted since 1955 which contained provisions affecting the functions, powers and services of local government; and if he will indicate, by item of legislation so listed, whether the legislation required local authorities to increase their staff levels or whether it did not.

Mr. King

I regret that the information requested is not readily available, and that the substantial staff time required to compile and analyse it would not be justifiable.
