HC Deb 14 April 1964 vol 693 c228
28. Mr. Ridley

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs when he expects to make his decision on the report of his inspector on the public inquiry into the future status of Cheltenham.

Sir K. Joseph

The public local inquiry into objections to the Local Government Commission's proposals for Cheltenham was held only last month and I have not yet received the inspector's report. I cannot yet say when I will be ready to take a decision.

Mr. Ridley

Will my right hon. Friend at least assure us that when he receives the inspector's report he will read it himself?

Sir K. Joseph

I do not think I need give any such assurance, even to my hon. Friend. I always read these reports.
