HC Deb 14 May 1941 vol 371 c1197
24. Mr. Kenneth Lindsay

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings whether he has yet received the interim report of the committee sitting under the chairmanship of Mr. Justice Uthwatt; whether it is to be published; and what action he is pro posing to take?

Mr. Hicks

Yes, Sir. My Noble Friend has received an interim report from the committee which is receiving immediate consideration by the Cabinet Committee on Reconstruction Problems, and will be presented to Parliament at an early date.

Mr. Lindsay

Can my hon. Friend say whether it is proposed to introduce legislation, or whether action is contemplated?

Mr. Hicks

We are hoping to get the report about the end of the month, and it will then be a matter for Parliament to consider.
