HC Deb 20 February 1945 vol 408 cc615-6
37. Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if it is the Government's intention to present to Parliament proposals for the review of Scottish local government similar to those contained in the local government White Paper affecting England and Wales.

Mr. Westwood

No, Sir. My right hon. Friend does not propose to make any radical alteration in the structure of local government in Scotland or in the procedure for the adjustment of local government areas. Certain minor alterations are being considered in connection with the report of the Local Government and Public Health Consolidation Committee.
