§ Mr. Hill
The London Borough of Islington has been directed to prepare a transfer scheme for the transfer of the appropriate staff, property, rights and liabilities of the London Research Centre to the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions. The transfer will take place on 1 April 2000. The intention is that the property, rights and liabilities will then transfer to the Greater London Authority on 8 May 2000, with the exception of a small number of functions of the LRC which will transfer to Transport for London on 3 July 2000. My officials are in contact with Islington Council as to the detailed contents of the transfer scheme.
