72. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware of the decision of the council of the London Borough of Camden to set up a policy committee of the council, membership of which is

the nationalised industries, showing each industry separately; and if he will estimate the proportion which the total represents as a percentage of the total assets of British industry.

Mr. Diamond

The following table gives the required information.

to be confined to members of the Labour Party and officers of the council; and, in view of this abuse of the machinery of local government for party purposes, whether he will direct the district auditor to make a special report as to the legality and propriety of the expenditure involved.

Mr. Greenwood

I would refer the right hon. Member to the Answer I gave in reply to a Question by the hon. Member from Bromley (Mr. Hunt) on the 1st November.—[Vol. 735, c.45–46.]
