HC Deb 10 December 1990 vol 182 cc274-5W
Mr. Blunkett

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received from Basildon district council on his proposed financial settlement for 1991–92; if he will publish those representations and any reply sent by his Department; and if he intends to meet representatives of the council in the near future.

Mr. Portillo

I have received representations from Basildon district council on the proposed 1991–92 settlement. It is for the authority to make public its representations if it so chooses. I have no plans at present to meet a delegation from the council.
