§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what is his policy concerning the review of local authority boundaries; and if he will make a statement.
I assume the hon. Member has in mind the reviews which county councils are required to undertake under Section 28 of the Local Government Act 1958.
If so, I would refer him to what I said on this subject in my statement about local government reorganisation on 10th February and in reply to the supplementary question by the right hon. Member for Kingston-upon-Thames (Mr. Boyd-Carpenter) (OFFICIAL REPORT, February 10th, cols. 644 and 645). I cannot add to this yet.
