HC Deb 06 July 1954 vol 529 c149W
74. Sir J. Crowder

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he has completed his discussions with the local authorities' associations on the recommendations of the committee appointed to investigate the operation of Exchequer equalisation grants; and how soon he will be able to publish a White Paper on this subject.

Mr. H. Macmillan

There are still some observations from local authorities outstanding; and I am not yet able to give a date for the publication of a White Paper.
