HC Deb 19 December 1985 vol 89 c263W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what discussions his Department has had with the organising committee of the London marathon regarding assistance from his Department for the 1986 marathon; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Tracey

None, except that I have been in correspondence with the London marathon organisation about the effects of the GLC's abolition on their use of County Hall buildings. I understand that, as a result, the organisers have had discussions with the London Residuary Body, to which County Hall will pass on 1 April 1986.
