HC Deb 28 June 1999 vol 334 c22W
Mr. Pond

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what plans he has to amend legislation regarding the code of practice on local authority publicity so that local authorities must not only have regard to this code but actively enforce it. [88075]

Mr. Meale

We have no plans to amend the legislation on the Code of Recommended Practice on Local Authority Publicity. In the paper "Local Leadership, Local Choice", laid before the House on 24 March 1999 (Cm 4298), we have made proposals, including a draft Bill, for a new framework to deliver high standards in all aspects of conduct throughout local government.
