§ Sir John Gorst
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the application of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 to local authority resolutions to require councillors to declare memberships of clubs, unions and societies as well as directorships and shareholdings in companies. 
§ Mr. Robert B. Jones
[holding answer 21 March 1995]: Regulation 3 and the schedule to the Local Authority (Members Interests) Regulations 1992, made under section 19 of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989, detail the prescribed direct or indirect pecuniary interests which each elected member is required to declare. DOE circular 9/92 provides further advice on the information which members are required to give, and I have arranged for a copy to be placed in the Library of the House.
