HC Deb 21 December 1983 vol 51 c266W
60. Ms. Harman

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will ensure that the grant-related expenditure of the London borough of Southwark is increased, if the Greater London council is abolished, to take account of the costs of developing Burgess park.

Mr. Waldegrave

When the GLC is abolished, the GREs of the London boroughs will be increased to take account of the additional functions they take on. I am currently consulting local government about the detailed financial arrangements. I will be glad to consider any specific representations which Southwark borough council wishes to make.
