§ Mr. Eldon Griffiths
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department for how long he has had in his possession the proposals of the Local Government Boundary Commission in respect of St. Edmundsbury District in Suffolk; why, in view of the fact that the public inquiry was completed in September 1976, he has failed so far to lay the orders to implement the changes proposed; and when he expects to do so.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
The Local Government Boundary Commission for England submitted its report on future electoral arrangements for the borough of St. Edmundsbury on 3rd February. This is one of a number of reports on which I have deferred action until the Commission's appeal against the High Court's judgment in a case brought by the London borough of Enfield has been heard.
