HC Deb 16 March 1992 vol 205 c904W
Mr. Raffan

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will give an estimate of how much money could be saved by moving to unitary local government in Wales.

Mr. David Hunt

My proposal for a structure of 23 unitary authorities is estimated to be cost neutral; I am placing in the Library of the House and in the Vote Office copies of the report submitted to me by financial consultants.

Mr. Anderson

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what arrangements he has made to consult with hon. Members on options for local government reorganisation.

Mr. David Hunt

I have invited hon. Members to submit their views to me, and have held meetings with every Member who has requested one.
