HC Deb 04 December 1964 vol 703 cc125-6W
Mr. Temple

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will lay before Parliament the General Grant Order for 1965–66 and 1966–67 before Parliament rises for Christmas; and whether he will make available an explanatory memorandum when the order is laid.

Mr. Crossman

With regard to the first part of the Question, I hope to do so. Section 1(6) of the Local Government Act, 1958, requires me also to lay a report explaining the considerations leading to the order.
