§ Mr. Cryer
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many local authorities were consulted regarding Exercise Hard Rock; how many have refused to take part; and if he will place in the Library a copy of the Home Office letter dated 12 May to chief executives of county councils, the director general of the Greater London Council and other local authority executives.
§ Mr. Mayhew
Chief executives of county councils in England and Wales, the director general of the GLC and the town clerk, City of London, were consulted in a Home Office letter dated 12 May. I am arranging for a copy to be placed in the Library.
Two county councils have indicated that they will not take part in the exercise.
