HC Deb 04 November 1937 vol 328 cc1118-9
67. Captain Conant

asked the Minister of Health whether the investigation he is making into his powers for preserving amenities is completed; and whether he proposes to introduce legislation during this Session?

Sir K. Wood

Preliminary investigations have been completed in the Department, and I am proposing now to take the views of the Advisory Committee.

Captain Conant

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the report of the investigation is likely to be published?

Sir K. Wood

No, but I will endeavour to see that the matter is expedited as far as possible, and that there is a proper examination of the position.

Mr. Bossom

Seeing that the Government accepted the Private Members' Motion of 10th February of this year, does not the right hon. Gentleman think it is time that some definite report be produced?

Sir K. Wood

I hope so.
