HC Deb 07 June 1888 vol 326 c1370
MR. BIDDULPH (Herefordshire, Ross)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, If he will request the Boundary Commissioners to present the Report containing their general recommendations to Parliament at an early date, with a Schedule showing the area and population of the several parts of counties proposed to be transferred from one county to another, distinguishing the cases of wholly or nearly detached parts of counties from those whose transfer is recommended for other reasons, so that the House may be in possession of the Report and Schedule before discussing the Boundary Clauses of the County Government Bill?

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

I have at present no information as to the date at which the Boundary Commissioners will be in a position to make a Report giving the details to which my hon. Friend refers; but I will communicate with the Commissioners, with the view of ascertaining within what time their Report will probably be ready.
