HC Deb 26 March 1957 vol 567 c950
15. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish as a White Paper a summary of his discussions with the local authorities on the new method of calculating block grants before he announces the decisions of Her Majesty's Government on this subject.

Mr. J. N. Browne

It is the intention to present a White Paper as soon as the discussions with the local authority associations have been concluded. My right hon. Friend hopes that this will be before the Summer Recess.
