HC Deb 18 December 1946 vol 431 cc1954-5
46. Mr. Peart

asked the Prime Minister if he will arrange for a Royal Commission to investigate the reform of local government in all its aspects.

The Prime Minister

No, Sir.

Mr. Peart

While the reply is negative, would my right hon. Friend keep the whole question in mind? Is he aware that there is in this House and in the country a large volume of opinion which favours an urgent and radical reform of local government?

The Prime Minister

Yes, I dare say there may be, but I do not think there is any unanimity on the matter.
