asked the Minister of Health when the Standing Conference on London Regional Planning was established; whether he can say how many meetings have been held since September, 1939; what was the date of the last meeting; and upon whom is the responsibility for summoning meetings?
The Standing Conference on London Regional Planning was established in 1937, and, by its terms of reference, it is limited to dealing with planning matters relating to Greater London which may from time to time be referred to it. The Conference first met on 13th October, 1937, and its last meeting was held on 3rd March, 1939. I understand that no further meetings have been held because no matters have been referred to it since the outbreak of war. Meetings are summoned by the Chairman through the Honorary Secretary who is the Clerk of the London County Council.
