§ Mr. Heddle
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what discussions he has had with the London Residuary Body about the £76 million granted by the Greater London council to the accountancy firm Satman for housing repairs in the London boroughs.
§ Sir George Young
The question of the GLC's payments to Satman was raised at a meeting between my right hon. Friend and the chairman of the London Residuary Body on 24 April. We understand that the status of the payments will initially be the subject of counsel's opinion sought by the GLC's appointed director of Satman.
