HC Deb 23 November 1983 vol 49 cc215-6W
56. Mr. Dormand

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the future of Peterlee development corporation.

Sir George Young

We have begun a review of the target dates for the winding-up of Peterlee and the other two development corporations in the north-east and are aiming to issue a consultation paper on this shortly. Our intention is to complete the review by 31 March 1984 at the latest, as I told the House on 14 April.—[Vol. 40, c. 1058.]
