§ Mr. Wareing
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will visit Liverpool to discuss with interested parties the consequences of the abolition of the Merseyside county council: and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Baker
I refer the hon. Member to my reply of 14 February to the hon. Member for Liverpool, Riverside (Mr. Parry) at column590. There are no plans at present for any further ministerial visits to Liverpool to discuss abolition matters.
