asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs whether he has received the Final Report of the Local Government Commission covering the East Midlands Area; when he proposes to present this report; and if he will make a statement.

I understand that the report of the Local Government Commission on the East Midlands General Review Area will be sent to me later this summer. I intend to publish it as soon as practicable after I receive it.The publication of each of the Commission's reports will be followed by a period during which representations may be made to me. If objections are lodged by any of the local authorities concerned, I shall normally hold a local public inquiry. It will clearly be several months before I am in a position to decide whether to bring orders before Parliament affecting the East Midlands.
