§ Mr. Allan Roberts
asked the Prime Minister (1) if she will publish a list of all Acts of Parliament, and relevant sections thereof, which in any way give the Secretary of State default or directive powers over local authorities;
(2) if she will publish a list of all Acts of Parliament, and relevant sections thereof, which give members of the public or aggrieved persons a right of appeal to the Secretary of State in respect of decisions or policies of local authorities.
§ The Prime Minister:
The information requested is not available and its collection would entail disproportionate expense. If the hon. Member has a specific problem in mind, I suggest that he writes to the Minister responsible.
