HC Deb 29 January 1976 vol 904 c301W
Mr. Steen

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why the hon. Member for Liverpool, Wavertree was not advised until 12th January that a letter he wrote on 15th December to the Minister for Transport about taxi licence plates was to be transferred to the Home Office.

Dr. Gilbert

Nine working days have elapsed between the date on which the hon. Member's letter was received and the date on which a letter notifying transfer was despatched. I regret this delay which occurred as a result of an oversight.
