§ 85. Mr. Ogden
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he is aware that the Local Government Boundary Commission have not yet published their proposals for the South-East Lancashire and the Merseyside Special Review Areas, although these proposals were promised some weeks ago; what is the cause of this delay in publication; when the proposals will be published; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Crossman
I understand that draft proposals for the two special review areas will be published in the middle of December. The Commission assure me that there has been no delay in publication. They explained when they issued their draft proposals for the North-246W Western General review area in October that those proposals were being published first to spread the load of printing and distribution.
