HC Deb 28 April 1887 vol 314 c248
MR. F. S. STEVENSON (Suffolk, Eye)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether the Local Government Bill, promised by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, will be introduced in the House of Commons or in "another place;" and, whether questions relating to allotments and to the management of local charities will come within the scope of that Bill, or form the subjects of separate measures?

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

The Local Government Bill will be introduced in this House as soon as the state of Public Business will permit. The question as to allotments will be dealt with in a separate Bill. The management of local charities will not come within the scope of the Local Government Bill, except in those cases where the charities are administered by the Local Authorities.
