HC Deb 30 October 1985 vol 84 c520W
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.
