HC Deb 12 December 1986 vol 107 c278W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will list the recommendations of the Widdicombe report on the conduct of local government that have been implemented by his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Boyson

As my right hon. Friend made clear when the Widdicombe report was published on 19 June, the Government intend to weigh the public response to the report before drawing their own conclusions. Consultation on the report is still continuing; interested parties have until the end of the year to submit their views.
