HC Deb 09 March 1983 vol 38 cc391-2W
Mr. Field

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the reasons for his delay in approving the Dacre street clearance order in Birkenhead.

Sir George Young

The Secretary of State received objections to the compulsory purchase order made by the Wirral borough council in respect of the Dacre street Birkenhead Nos. 1, 2 and 3 clearance areas. A public local inquiry was held on 20 July 1982. The inspector's report is now under consideration and a decision will be issued as soon as possible.
