§ Mr. Shersby
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what (a) ceremonial and (b) other functions flow from the continued existence of the county of Greater London following abolition of the Greater London council; and what is the cost of these to public funds for the most recent 12 months period for which figures are available.
§ Mr. Chope
The functions of the former GLC were transferred to new and existing bodies in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Act 1985. Aggregate information on the cost of providing ceremonial or other functions across Greater London is not available.
