§ Mr. Morley
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment how many letters responding to the draft and final report of the Local Government Commission were riot considered by the commission as they were ruled to have arrived after the deadline for representations in relation to the commission's proposals for Humberside; in what circumstances letters sent in response to earlier consultations by the Local Government Commission in relation to Humberside were ignored after deadlines; and if he will give a breakdown of letters received in terms of support for the various options put forward by the commission in response to both the draft and final report in relation to proposals for Humberside.
§ Mr. Baldry
This is a matter for the Local Government Commission and I have written to it today asking it to reply direct to the hon. Member.
