HC Deb 23 July 1970 vol 804 c223W
Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government when he will complete his study of the possible extension of the remit of the Parliamentary Commissioner to deal with local authority complaints.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Dorset, South (Mr. Evelyn King), on 14th July. The implications of a possible local government ombudsman system are far reaching and have to be considered in relation to the proposed reorganisation of the structure of local government.—[Vol. 803, c.157–8.]
