HC Deb 11 May 1992 vol 207 cc38-9W
Mr. Roger Evans

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is the timetable for his proposals for local government reorganisation and in particular the restoration of Monmouthshire.

Mr. David Hunt

I will be publishing a White Paper later this year. Legislation will follow. I intend that the new shadow authorities should be in place from 1 April 1994 and fully operational/functional for 1 April 1995. The proposal for a separate council for Monmouth featured in my statement of 3 March on which I have invited views.
