§ Mr. Corbyn
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the present arrangements for financing the Lea Valley regional park; and what arrangements will be made, if the Greater London council is abolished, to continue its funding.
§ Mr. Tracey
The arrangements for funding the Lea Valley regional park authority are set out in the Lea Valley Regional Park Act 1966. The three contributing councils are the Greater London council and the Essex and Hertfordshire county councils. The intention is for the GLC contribution to be split at abolition between the 32 London boroughs and the City of London by means of a per capita levy.
