HC Deb 26 July 1993 vol 229 c708W
Mr. Straw

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many meetings have been held by Ministers with hon. Members to discuss the review of local government in England; and if he will list these meetings giving dates and the numbers of hon. Members present on each occasion.

Mr. Gummer

I and my ministerial colleagues frequently discuss with hon. Members a wide range of issues, including the local government review, and we welcome the opportunity to do so, whether formally in the Department or informally elsewhere. We keep no list of such discussions.
