§ 31. Mr. HURD
asked the Minister of Health by what means he intends to carry out the undertaking of the Government to confer with all the local authorities concerned in the proposed changes in local government areas and services, including roads; and when it is proposed by the Government that any changes resulting from these conferences shall come into operation?
I have laid before the House a memorandum, dealing fully wish the proposals of the Government in regard to local government and finance. The memorandum will be circulated to the associations of local authorities, and it is my intention to discuss these proposals with representatives of the associations. As regards the second part of the question, I would ask my hon. Friend to await the publication of the memorandum.
§ Major Sir ARCHIBALD SINCLAIR
Does this memorandum contain the famous formula to which the Chancellor of the Exchequer referred?
I do not think that the word "roads" is mentioned in my answer. The hon. Member must ask my hon. Friend who put down the question.
