HC Deb 14 May 1888 vol 326 c141
MR. HENRY H. FOWLER (Wolverhampton, E.)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether, having regard to the representations that have been made to him on behalf of the Municipal Boroughs, he proposes to make any additions to the boroughs to be included in Schedule 4 of the Local Government Bill?

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

The Government are sensible of the strength of the representations which have been made to them on the subject referred to by the right hon. Gentleman. The matter is now being carefully considered; and I propose, when the Amendment of the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Bury (Sir Henry James), which is one of the first Amendments in Committee on the Bill, comes on for consideration, to make a statement on the subject. I am afraid I cannot do so until then, as it is essential that I should enter into particulars, which could not satisfactorily be done in answer to a Question.
