HC Deb 26 February 1880 vol 250 c1440

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he has addressed a Circular to the Vestry Clerks of the Metropolis with reference to the provisions of the Act 41 and 42 Vic. c. 26, s. 5, enfranchising separate occupiers of parts of houses; and, if so, whether he has any objection to laying this Circular, and the replies of the Vestry Clerks thereto, upon the Table of the House?


in reply, said, it was in consequence of a Question from the hon. Gentleman last Session that he had issued a Circular. The Circular did not express, nor was it intended to express, any opinion as to what the state of the law was. Many replies had been received. They were very voluminous; but if the hon. Member wished to see them he should be happy to show them to him.
