HC Deb 13 November 1981 vol 12 cc206-7W
Mr. O'Halloran

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received regarding the proposed legislation on local government finance from the Association of Metropolitan Authorities; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. King

The association has commented on the proposals set out in the technical memorandum issued by my Department on 30 September. Those comments indicated general opposition to the proposals and dealt with some of their technical aspects.
