HC Deb 20 May 1878 vol 240 c257

asked the Chairman of the Metropolitan Board of Works, If he will lay upon the Table of the House Copies of the Contracts for Watering and Scavengering the streets for 1878, entered into by the undermentioned Vestries and District Boards—1. Saint James, Westminster; 2. Westminster District; 3. Strand District; 4. Saint Giles District; 5. Holborn District; 6. Saint George, Hanover Square; 7. Saint Marylebone; 8. Paddington; 9. Kensington; 10. Fulham; 11. Chelsea?


I should be very glad to comply with the wishes of the hon. Member if it were in my power; but I have no exclusive information, in virtue of the office which I hold, respecting the contracts entered into by the vestries and district boards, and I must refer him to the vestry clerks of the parishes mentioned in his Question. If I can render him any assistance in obtaining the information from those gentlemen, I shall be happy to do so.
