HC Deb 24 July 1984 vol 64 c628W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will define what he means by a disposal of land in his proposals for controlling the activities of the Greater London council and the metropolitan county councils if the Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill becomes law.

Mr. Macfarlane

I refer to hon. Members to the wording of clause 8(5) of the Local Government (Interim Provisions) Bill. Regard should also be had to schedule 1 of the Interpretation Act, 1978.
