HC Deb 06 March 2001 vol 364 c125W
Mr. Blunt

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps would need to be taken to postpone the elections scheduled for 3 May; and when an announcement would be made to the House. [152609]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

We have no current plans to postpone the local elections schedules for 3 May. To do so would require changes to the current law.
