HC Deb 01 November 1966 vol 735 cc45-6W
57. Mr. Hunt

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware of the decision of the council of the London Borough of Lewisham to set up a policy committee of the council specifically excluding members of the minority group; 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 know of nothing illegal in this action. However, if the law is being broken the District Auditor will no doubt call attention to it.
