§ Sir J. FERGUSON
asked the Minister of Health why the amalgamation of Cranford with the Hayes Urban District Council is being pressed forward against the wish of the Middlesex County Council to amalgamate Cranford with Heston and Isleworth District Council; and will he receive a deputation of Cranford residents?360W
§ Mr. GREENWOOD
This decision is incidental to the splitting up of the Staines Rural District between adjoining urban districts, and was made after careful consideration of all the circumstances. Two public inquiries were held by my inspectors, and full opportunity was afforded to all persons affected by the proposals to make representations. In the circumstances, I do not think a deputation would serve any useful purpose.
