§ Mr. Roger Evans
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make available in the Library copies of the responses he has received to the proposals on local government reorganisation set out in his statement to the House on 3 March, at columns 171–72.
§ Mr. David Hunt
Yes. I am placing in the Library of the House copies of the formal response submitted to me by the Welsh local authority associations, individual authorities and others, together with the reports prepared by the structures group and its sub-groups. These latter reports were prepared as advice for the Welsh consultative Council on Local Government and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Welsh Office or the local authority associations.
