HC Deb 23 July 1970 vol 804 c750
Q1. Mr. Marks

asked the Prime Minister if he will take steps to co-ordinate the functions of the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Housing and Local Government.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Edward Heath)

The machinery of Government in this area is under review.

Mr. Marks

During the period of this review—and we do not know how long it will take—will the Prime Minister do something about the lack of co-ordination between regional planning councils and the joint conferences of local authorities?

The Prime Minister

I have already said that the results of the review will be announced in the autumn, but I shall certainly attend to the points which the hon. Gentleman mentioned.
