HC Deb 20 May 1965 vol 712 c270W
65. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why the Report of the Boundaries Commission on the London Boroughs was issued to the Press before it was released to hon. Members.

Mr. George Thomas

This was not a Report by the Boundary Commission for England, but statutory notification of certain provisional recommendations—a matter entirely for the Commission. When in due course the Commission submits final recommendations for England as a whole, the presentation of its Report to Parliament will, of course, precede publication.
