HC Deb 21 January 1986 vol 90 c141W
Mr. Fatchett

asked the Secretary of State for Transport 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. Ridley

I expect costs of the order of those incurred this year given in reply to the hon. Member on 16 December 1985, at column47, by the then Minister of State, my hon. Friend the Member for Wallasey (Mrs. Chalker). They will be contained within my Department's manpower and running cost targets.
