HC Deb 08 February 1966 vol 724 c40W
48. Mr. Oakes

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he will make a statement on the question of whether there should be a new review of local government in respect of the southeast Lancashire conurbation.

Mr. Crossman

The question whether to proceed now with the reorganisation of local government in the south-east Lancashire conurbation depends on the Government's decision, which it is hoped to announce very shortly, whether to institute a radical review of local government.
