HC Deb 16 January 1986 vol 89 c677W
Sir Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects to complete consideration of the Nugee report; and if he will introduce legislation on the subject of service charges at an early date.

Mr. John Patten

My right hon. Friend and I are still considering the many recommendations in the Nugee report in consultation with colleagues in other Departments which have an interest. I will make a statement as soon as possible, but I cannot say at this stage when it will be possible to introduce legislation on this subject.
