asked the President of the Local Government Board, respecting a public inquiry made in August last at Town Mailing, in Kent, into alleged illegal voting and tampering with voting papers by certain influential persons in connection with the election of a Poor Law Guardian, Whether the Local Government Board have arrived at any decision upon the questions in- volved; and, if so, when it will be communicated to the local authorities concerned?


in reply, said, that the decision of the Local Government Board in this case had been delayed in consequence of the absence of their legal adviser; but the inquiry had now terminated, and the result had been communicated to the parties.
