HC Deb 03 August 1888 vol 329 c1401
MR. F. S. STEVENSON (Suffolk, Eye)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, In how many instances, since the passing of the Allotments Act, have applications been made to the Local Government Board by Sanitary Authorities with the object of putting in force the compulsory clauses?

THE PRESIDENT (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)

The Local Government Board have not yet received formal Petitions under the Allotments Act for powers of compulsory purchase of land. I would remind the hon. Member that such applications can only be made after advertisements have been issued and notices served, at the earliest in the months of September and October.
