§ The Minister of Housing and Local Government (Mr. Harold Macmillan)
Two, Erith and Dartford Borough Councils, have protested to me in writing, and I recently received a deputation from them and from four others: the Urban District Councils of Crayford, Northfleet, Chislehurst and Sidcup and the Rural District Council of Dartford. I am considering their representations.
§ Mr. Janner
I cannot quite agree with my hon. Friend's supplementary question. May I ask the Minister that in 1709 future, before he takes steps of this nature, he will consult the local councils and the local tribunals, or will go a step further and realise that there is very deep concern about the shutting down of these tribunals and not shut down any more?
§ Mr. Macmillan
I should not like to deal with the differences above and below the Gangway, as I feel they go far beyond my own personal character.
