HC Deb 19 June 1941 vol 372 cc849-50W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Minister without Portfolio whether he will take into consideration the general view that there is a strong case for a complete revision of local government boundaries after the war; and whether he will appoint an investigating committee?

Mr. Greenwood

I am aware that some reorganisation of local government areas and functions may be called for in connection with reconstruction plans. I have given some preliminary consideration to this question and I hope in due course to be able to make a further statement.
