HC Deb 30 October 1975 vol 898 c578W
Mr. Richard Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received concerning the Local Government Boundary Commission's review of electoral arrangements in the metropolitan districts.

Dr. Summerskill

We have received representations from some right hon. and hon. Members about the reviews by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England of the electoral arrangements for Kirklees, Manchester and Rochdale. These, like other representations from the Association of Metropolitan Authorities, the Birmingham Corporation and one constituency Labour Party, mainly concern the sizes of metropolitan district and county councils and the timing of the reviews.
