HC Deb 16 July 1969 vol 787 c103W
66. Mr. Clark Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he now expects to receive the Wheatley Report.

Mr. Ross

On the timing of the Royal Commission's Report, I have nothing to add to the reply I gave the hon. Member for Moray and Nairn (Mr. Gordon Campbell) on 15th April. While we are anxious to press ahead as soon as possible with legislation on local government reform, the timing and content of Scottish legislation cannot be decided until the Commission has published its report and we have considered it.—[Vol. 781, c.229–30.]
