HC Deb 30 October 1985 vol 84 c535W
Mr. Corbyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why consent for Spare Rib under section 7 of the Local Government (Interim Provisions) Act 1984 was refused.

Mr. Tracey

My right hon. Friend was not satisfied that there was any justification for an organisation whose primary put-pose is to publish a mass circulation popular magazine to be funded by ratepayers.
