HC Deb 26 July 1967 vol 751 c172W
Mr. Derek Page

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what steps he is taking to inform local authorities, and other organisations concerned, in East Anglia of the establishment and functions of Sir Joseph Hunt's Committee so as to enable them to consider suitable representations.

Mr. Shore

The Chairmen of the Regional Economic Planning Councils have been fully informed by my right hon. Friend of the reasons why the Government decided to set up the Committee under Sir Joseph Hunt. The process of setting up the Committee has not been completed and the procedures for handling its business, which will be primarily for the Committee to decide, have not yet been worked out.
