HC Deb 12 July 1888 vol 328 cc1102-3
MR. HALLEY STEWART (Lincolnshire, Spalding)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether, if the number of selected Councillors in London were to be limited to one-sixth of the total number of Coun- cillors, the same principle would be extended to County Councils?

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

said, he had only received Notice of the Question on entering the House; but he had no hesitation in saying at once that the Government had no intention whatever of departing from the principle laid down in their proposals.
