HC Deb 02 June 1938 vol 336 c2222
44 Mr. Chorlton

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the proposal for a regional council for South Lancashire for the districts around Manchester; and whether he is keeping in close touch with the proposal and has arranged for a representative to attend?

Mr. Elliot

I am aware that this project is under discussion locally and I shall watch developments with interest.

Mr. Chorlton

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the setting up of a regional council for this district, to carry out common needs and services in the locality, would be a great saving?

Mr. Elliot

I think it would be a great advantage if these proposals were carried out, and I am keeping closely in touch with the matter.
