HC Deb 21 January 1986 vol 90 c140W
Mr. Fatchett

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if there are any proposed staff costs in his Department in the financial year 1986–87, arising out of duties associated with the implementation of the Local Government Act 1985.

Mr. Tracey

Yes, although it is too soon to quantify those costs. They will be contained within the Department's manpower targets for 1986–87.
