HC Deb 17 July 1986 vol 101 cc628-9W
Mr. Baldry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what would be the effect of his Green Paper proposals "Paying for Local Government" on the funding of parish councils.

Mr. Waldegrave

We intend that town and parish councils should continue to derive their income by precepting on borough or district councils. We shall shortly be consulting the National Association of Local Councils and the local authority associations about the operation of these proposals.
