HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 c207W
84. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether, in view of the fact that he can make no further progress with the reorganisation of Tyneside on his proposal without a further inquiry, he will undertake to refer the future of Tyneside reorganisation to the Royal Commission.

Mr. Crossman

I would refer the hon. Member to what I said in reply to the supplementary question by my hon. Friend the Member for South Shields (Mr. Blenkinsop) following my statement about local government reorganisation on February 10th (OFFICIAL REPORT, February 10th, col. 648).
