§ 11. Mr. van Straubenzee
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government upon what date in 1969 he proposes to grant parish status to Charvil in Berkshire.
§ The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (Mr. Arthur Skeffington)
I have explained to the hon. Member by letter that the Minister has not yet received any formal application affecting Charvil.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
While thanking the Parliamentary Secretary for that letter and understanding the limitations of the statutory procedure, may I ask whether he will nevertheless, when he receives the application, remember that it comes from a very lively local community which is now long overdue for the status of a parish?
