HC Deb 26 January 1981 vol 997 c275W
Mr. Hill

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will reconsider the decision made on 23 July 1979 and make a favourable recommendation to Her Majesty the Queen that Her Majesty should grant a lord mayoralty to the city of Southampton.

Mr. Whitelaw

I have carefully considered the representations made to me but regret that I do not feel justified in recommending to Her Majesty that she should grant a lord mayoralty to Southampton.
