HC Deb 24 March 1885 vol 296 c378

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether he can state when it is purposed to introduce the measure for dealing with the whole question of Local Taxation and of Local Government, as declared to be most urgently required in the Amendment accepted by the Government and carried by this House upon the Debate on Local Taxation on the 17th April 1883?


The subject of the reform of local government in the Metropolis and in the whole of the Three Kingdoms is much in the mind of Her Majesty's Government. Large measures on the subject are ready; but the question as to which of them can be carried in the present Session is hardly ripe for decision until we see our way to the completion of the Committee and Report of the Amendments on the Seats Bill.
