HC Deb 07 February 1984 vol 53 cc568-9W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, pursuant to his reply of 16 January, Official Report, c. 92, what comments he has received about the future arrangements for the completion of Thamesmead.

Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received from individuals, local authorities, housing associations and other groups concerned with single homelessness in London about the Government's proposals in this respect arising from the White Paper, "Streamlining the Cities"; and if he will indicate those for and against provision to help the single homeless remaining with the Greater London council.

Sir George Young

The consultation period on the proposals set out in the White Paper and in the supplementary consultation documents expired on 31 Janaury, and we are still analysing the large number of responses we have only recently received.

Mr. Corbyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many letters he has had from people in Islington concerned with the Government's plans for rate capping and streamlining the cities.

Mr. Waldegrave

The large number of responses received on these two proposals have not been analysed by reference to their place of origin. It would involve disproportionate effort to do so.
