HC Deb 01 March 1934 vol 286 c1283W

asked the Minister of Health what action he proposes to take with regard to the representations to the effect that the suggested distribution of councillors between the several wards in the new Chislehurst and Sidcup urban district is inequitable, and that the Lamorbey ward would in particular be greatly under-represented?


I have received representations and also communications from the county council, who say that they do not object to a revision of the representation, and from the Sidcup and Chislehurst Urban District Councils and the North Cray Parish Council, who suggest an increased representation for the Lamorbey ward from three to five. I am also informed that this was agreed by the joint advisory committee of the local authorities concerned. The Order must be made immediately, and I am therefore increasing the representation of Lamorbey from three to five and am suggesting to the county council that the new urban district council and the county council should again consider the representation of the district within the next 12 months.
