HC Deb 25 July 1963 vol 681 c1778
Q10. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Prime Minister when the Government recommendations on the requirements of the North-East will be made available to the House.

The Prime Minister

I would refer the right hon. Member to the Answer I gave on Tuesday to the hon. Member for Blyth (Mr. Milne).

Mr. Shinwell

As I have not had the advantage of seeing that Answer, will the Prime Minister tell me whether an announcement will be made before the House rises for the Summer Recess?

The Prime Minister

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Pentland

Can the Prime Minister go further, and tell us on what day next week he expects this announcement to be made, and which Minister he expects will deliver the announcement? Can he also give an assurance that the noble Lord's plan will be given to this House before it is given in another place?

The Prime Minister

I shall, of course, take into account what suits the convenience of the House, and will, if necessary, work through the usual channels to arrange a suitable date. I cannot give it today.
