§ 23. Mr. Evennett
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the progress of consultation on the future control of Thamesmead.
§ Sir George Young
Consultation was completed last week and on 25 and 26 October all adult residents were invited to indicate their preference between a private trust controlled by local residents of Thamesmead, a similar organisation controlled by Greenwich council or neither of these options. The ballot is being conducted by consultants under the supervision of the Electoral Reform Society. The result should be announced on or about 6 November 1985.
