§ Captain Strickland
asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether a Report on the planning of the London Regional Area is now being prepared by Professor Abercrombie; if so, when it will be published; and whether any other scheme for the planning of that area is under consideration by his Ministry.
§ Mr. H. Strauss
Professor Abercrombie was appointed in 1942 to prepare an outline plan and Report for the area surrounding London so as to form, with the plans of the City and County of London, which were already being prepared, a comprehensive plan for the whole region. He has completed his plan and Report, which are now in my right hon. Friend's hands. They will be published as soon as practicable, but I cannot yet give the date of publication. I am not aware of any other plan covering the whole area.
