Mr. Meale

[holding answer 14 May 1999]: We are currently considering a number of petitions and district reviews for new parish arrangements, including the petition for a town council for Weston-super-Mare. Our intention is to take decisions on a timescale to allow elections for any new parishes to be held in May 2000.
