asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will confirm the transfer of land from Appleford and Sutton Courtenay to the town of Didcot as recommended by the Boundary Commission.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
My right hon. Friend received the Local Government Boundary Commission's report on 15 January, and the objection period does not end until 26 February. If my right hon. Friend decides to implement the proposals, the aim would be to bring the new arrangements into effect on 1 April 1986. My noble Friend Lord Avon is writing to my hon. Friend to explain the procedure.
