HC Deb 18 July 1984 vol 64 c198W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on his recent visit to Merseyside.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

I visited Merseyside on 13 July 1984.

In the morning I addressed the green towns and cities UK-USA congress, organised by the Dartington institute, at Liverpool university. I afterwards met the press and then went to the international garden festival site, where I opened British week and the grand summer show.

In the afternoon I visited the Radio City studios to take part in its "Home from the House" programme, and later had discussions with representatives of the Merseyside enterprise forum and the Merseyside branch of NALGO.
