§ Mr. Longden
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government who are the members of his working party on the financial control of local authority building departments; what positions they occupy; and what organisations nominated them.
§ Mr. MacColl
The information is as follows:
dereliction and on environmental improvement in industrial areas within the North-West Region.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
The effect on the environment is one of the factors in the Government's regular examination of the level of public expenditure. Within current restrictions encouraging progress 469W is being made in the North-West region, including its industrial areas, in for example reclaiming derelict land, extending smoke control, and the prevention of river pollution. But it would not be practicable to isolate expenditure the sole purpose of which is the removal of dereliction and environmental improvement, which are promoted by many activities of central and local government.
