HC Deb 23 April 1986 vol 96 c170W
48. Mr. Spencer

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what recent representations he has received on the working of the Audit Commission.

Mr. Waldegrave

The only recent representations have been about the audit consequences of late rate making by some local authorities. However, this is entirely a matter for the Audit Commission and its auditors, who are independent of central and local government.
