HC Deb 15 July 1963 vol 681 cc13-4W
81. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Govern- ment and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he has yet received the Local Government Commission's report on Tyneside.

Mr. Corfield

The Report and proposals of the Local Government Commission for the Tyneside Special Review Area are now with my right hon. Friend and he is arranging for their publication tomorrow. Copies of the Report and accompanying maps will be available that day in the Vote Office. Copies of the definitive maps which are also referred to in the Report will be placed in the Library. My right hon. Friend has sent copies to the local authorities and other public authorities concerned informing them that any representations on the Commission's proposals should be sent to him by the end of October. My right hon. Friend will arrange public local inquiries to hear objections as necessary.
