HC Deb 25 April 1939 vol 346 c974W
Mr. Poole

asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the request from the Birmingham and District Tenants Association to receive a small deputation from that body, and whether he is prepared to agree to the request?

Mr. Elliot

I have communicated with the hon. Member and explained that as the matter is entirely within the discretion of the Birmingham Town Council and I have no jurisdiction in connection with it, I do not feel that I can properly intervene by receiving the desired deputation.
