49Adjustment of boundaries of counties and county boroughs

(1)Where at the commencement of this Act any district or parish is not wholly comprised within one county, or where a part of a county is wholly detached therefrom, the county councils concerned shall as soon as may be take the case into consideration, and if as a result of such consideration a joint representation is made to the Minister by those councils, the Minister may, after holding a local inquiry, except in cases where he is satisfied that an inquiry is unnecessary, by order make such alteration of the counties as may be necessary to secure that the whole of the district or parish shall be within a single county, or to provide that such detached part shall be included in or divided amongst the county or counties surrounding it.

(2)The Minister may, on a joint representation being made by the council of a county and the council of a county borough, after holding a local inquiry, except in cases where he is satisfied that an inquiry is unnecessary, by order alter or define the boundary between the county and the county borough.

(3)An order under this section shall be laid before Parliament as soon as may be after it is made.
