HC Deb 15 May 1947 vol 437 cc1707-8
75. Mr. Osbert Peake

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress is being made by the Boundary Commissioners in the preparation of schemes under the Redistribution of Seats Act, 1947.

Mr. Oliver

It is hoped that the provisional recommendations of the Commissions for England and Wales will be made known within a few weeks.

Mr. Charles Williams

May I ask the hon. Gentleman how long it will be before we may hope to see some of these very small boroughs eliminated?

Mr. Oliver

That does not arise out of this Question.
