HC Deb 27 May 1936 vol 312 cc2025-6W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware of the conflict which has arisen between the borough councils of Hornsey and Islington over the latter's housing proposals for Hornsey Lane which forms the boundary between the two boroughs; and whether he will use his good offices to bring the two councils and the London County Council into conference, with the assistance of his Department, so that neighbourly relations between the two boroughs may be encouraged and the housing needs of Islington may be met without impairing the Hornsey town-planning scheme?


I understand that the Islington Borough Council propose to make an order for the acquisition of this land. When this order is submitted to me I shall direct an inquiry and in view of my position in the matter I do not think I can usefully take any action pend- ing the inquiry, though I shall be happy to do anything in my power to promote the object desired by my hon. Friend.
