HL Deb 15 March 2001 vol 623 c110WA
Lord Hoyle

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What plans they have to make regulations on alternative arrangements for local authorities under Section 32 of the Local Government Act 2000. [HL1251]

Lord Whitty

We have today laid before Parliament a draft of the Local Authorities (Alternative Arrangements) (England) Regulations 2001.

It is now for the House to consider this draft. To assist the House, I have placed in the Library and the Printed Papers Office copies of a draft of the guidance on alternative arrangements which we propose to issue to English local authorities if the draft regulations are approved by the House and the other place.
