§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish the letter he has received from Conservative leaders of London borough councils supporting the Local Government Bill; and if the letter has been signed by the leader of Waltham Forest council.
§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
I have asked the chairman of the London Boroughs Association, who initiated the letter, to send the hon. Member a copy. It was subscribed to by the Conservative leaders of the other councils listed in the answer given in reply to a question from the hon. Member for Newham, North-West (Mr. Banks) on 29 November last at column558–9. This included the leader of the Conservative group on the Waltham Forest council.
