22.

asked the Minister of Town and Country Planning whether he will give the date upon which he received a request from the Association of Municipal Corporations asking him to receive a deputation; and whether he has yet received that deputation?

By letter dated 8th October, 1943, the Association inquired whether I should be prepared to receive a deputation, and were informed on 15th October, 1943, that I should be glad to do so. On 28th October, 1943, the Association approached me regarding a date, which is now being fixed to suit our mutual convenience.

Is it not a fact that this very important body was exceedingly anxious to have a deputation received at a very early date, and can the Minister give some assurance that a date will be fixed within the next few days?

I made inquiries of the Association, and I understand that they have no sense of grievance in the matter. The date is being fixed as early as possible.

The Minister and myself have very different information as to whether they are under a sense of grievance.
