HC Deb 12 July 1928 vol 219 c2439

asked the Minister of Health what local authorities or associations of local authorities in England and Wales, if any, have made representations to him asking for the reorganisation of local government on the lines laid down in the recently issued White Paper on proposals for the reforms of local government?


The proposals outlined in the White Paper arise out of the scheme for the de-rating of certain classes of hereditaments, which was made public in the Budget statement. There has consequently been no occation for local authorities or their associations to make any special representations. The hon. Member is no doubt aware that it is intended to discuss the proposals with representatives of the appropriate associations of local authorities.
