§ 46. Mr. Lubbock
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs when he proposes to introduce legislation regulating the position of the Metropolitan Water Board in relation to the Greater London Council and London boroughs.
§ Sir K. Joseph
Since there will be no opportunity for legislation in the present Session, the Board will continue in existence for a time after the reorganisation of London Government. The Board's constitution will, however, have to be altered meanwhile to allow for the changes in its constituent authorities and I shall, after consultation with the Board and the new authorities, make an order under the London Government Act, 1963, for this purpose.
