§ Mr. SCURR
asked the Minister of Health whether he has received any representations from boards of guardians in the Metropolitan area asking that the per1158W
will arrange that the Second Reading of the Rating and Valuation Bill is not taken until after Whitsun?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
In view of the fact that the Bill, in its main outlines, follows the draft Bill which was circulated to local authorities and other interests concerned some 18 months ago, I do not think that it is necessary to defer the Second Reading of the Bill as suggested.
