§ Lord Molson
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the District Auditor and the Audit Commission are investigating expenditure by the Greater London Enterprise Board alleged to have been made in the London Standard (18th October) and whether and when their investigations will be published.
§ The Minister of State, Department of the Environment (Lord Elton)
The Greater London Enterprise Board is not one of the bodies to which Section 12 of the Local Government Finance Act 1982 applies. Neither the District Auditor nor the Audit Commission has a locus to investigate the board's expenditure.
