asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what further progress has been made in respect of the re-organisation of local government, particularly in view of the desire of some municipal boroughs to secure county borough powers and status.

I cannot yet add to the statement I made in the debate on the Second Reading of the Luton Corporation Bill on 18th March.

Surely the Minister can give some indication when we can have a report on this very important subject, seeing that a large number of municipal bodies are awaiting this report?

Can the Minister say when we are likely to get some definite statement on the matter?
