asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations have been made to him of the present operation of the Consultative Council on Local Government Finance.
My Department has received three written representations about the operation of the Consultative Council on Local Government Finance; from the London Boroughs Association, the Greater London council and the Association of London Authorities. There was also discussion with all of the local authority associations at the CCLGF meeting held on 17 April. The associations requested that there should be no change to the existing structure of local authority representation for a year. The associations seemed generally content with the other aspects of CCLGF arrangements.
