To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) if he will outline the statutory responsibilities that he proposes shall he placed upon the unitary local authorities following his proposed re organisation of local government in Scotland;(2) if he will list the non-statutory and permissive powers he proposes shall be made available to the unitary local authorities following his proposed reorganisation of local government in Scotland.

[holding answer 24 June 1992]: My right hon. Friend intends to issue a second consultation paper on local government reorganisation in the autumn. This will set out illustrative options for the new structure and discuss how services might be delivered under different structures. No decisions about powers or responsibilities will be taken until we have completed our thorough and comprehensive consultation.
