HC Deb 28 January 1937 vol 319 c1070
62. Sir A. Wilson

asked the Minister of Health whether the Royal Commission on Tyneside Local Government which was appointed in 1935 has indicated the probable approximate date by which their report will be completed?

Sir K. Wood

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given by the Prime Minister to the hon. Member for Consett (Mr. David Adams) on 21st January, of which I am sending him a copy.

Sir A. Wilson

While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for his reply, may I ask whether in view of the great importance of this question in relation to Special Areas he will consider printing the evidence so that we may have it at our disposal before we discuss the Special Areas?

Sir K. Wood

I think we should have the report first. That will be the most convenient course.
