HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 cc207-8W
Mr. Howe

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT a table which sets out the Statutes whose enforcement or operation falls within the responsibility of his Department or of local or other public authorities under the guidance or surveillance of his Department and which provide for the licensing, registration or inspection of persons, premises or institutions of a particular kind, identifying in each case the authorities or persons by whom such licensing, registration or inspection is to be effected, and stating in each case the extent to which he is satisfied that the processes of licensing, registration and inspection are being completely and effectively carried out.

Mr. Crossman

This information is not readily available and I do not consider that the large body of work involved in attempting to provide it would be justified. If, however, the hon. Member is concerned with the administration of a particular function and cares to put down a Question on this aspect, I will do what is possible to help him.
