HC Deb 22 April 1982 vol 22 c122W
Q34. Sir John Biggs-Davison

asked the Prime Minister whether, having regard to the response in Northern Ireland to the proposal for an Assembly and rolling devolution now before Her Majesty's Ministers, she will have plans prepared instead for a better system of local government and provincial administration subject to the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

The Prime Minister

No. The White Paper "Northern Ireland: A Framework for Devolution" which contains the Government's proposals will be debated shortly.
