HC Deb 25 November 1937 vol 329 cc1409-10
81. Captain Alan Graham

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the fact that the Departmental Committee on the Ordnance Survey, on whose decision depends the production of the up-to-date maps so urgently needed for town-planning and other schemes, has now been sitting for two and a-half years without producing its final report, he can say when the publication of this report may be expected?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I hope to receive the final report of the committee early in the New Year. The question of the production of maps for town planning purposes was dealt with in the interim report published in 1936 and effect has been given to the recommendations made thereon.

Captain Graham

Is the delay in the publication of the report due to the fact that, after more or less unanimous agreement in committee, the Members refused to sign the final draft of the report?

Mr. De La Bère

Do the Government still fail to realise what agriculture wants?
