HC Deb 17 May 1984 vol 60 c219W
Mr. Arnold

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what progress he has made with his plans to build a new court house in Stockport; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

I have been asked to reply.

Our officials hope very soon to be in a position to approve the accommodation schedule for this scheme; it will then be for the providing authority, Stockport metropolitan borough council, to submit sketch plans and cost estimates. Every effort will be made within existing staff resources to help the authority to meet its projected 1985–86 building start date.
