Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Domestic Accommodation (Fire Escapes) (2 Dec 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: I cannot, without notice, give the figures for which my hon. Friend asks.

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (19 Nov 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: The House will recall that the last report by the Boundary Commission for England, following its last general review, was dated April 1969.

In that respect the Order was some 18 months out...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (19 Nov 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: May I have the leave of the House to speak again? The hon. Member for Leeds, South (Mr. Merlyn Rees) raises two points.

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People (19 Nov 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: No. The normal position is that when the Commission starts to work on a major review it says that it does not intend to introduce any further interim changes. Therefore, there will be a period from the time when the major review is started when it announces that it will not be introducing any interim changes. That is some years ahead. In the meantime I shall be bringing forward similar Orders...
