HC Deb 17 May 1922 vol 154 c352
42. Sir R. CLOUGH

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the Vote on the Leeds and Bradford Extension Bill and the feeling thereby engendered on municipal plans of this nature, he will now consider the desirability of instituting a general inquiry into the whole question of urban extension and the principles which should govern it, so as to avoid injustice to the non-urban districts and the waste of money in promoting schemes which do not meet with public acceptance?


I am at present conferring with representatives of the County Councils Association and the Municipal Corporations Association on the general question of borough extensions, and I hope it may be possible to arrive at some agreement which will commend itself to the judgment of the House.
