§ MR. HULSE (Salisbury)
asked the President of the Local Government Board, What will be the future position of the Town Council under Clause 3, Sub-section 4, of the Local Government Bill; and, whether the County Council will maintain and have entire control over buildings in boroughs which are used for the Assize Courts, now belonging to the Council of such boroughs, and in which Assizes may be, and are, held?
§ THE PRESIDENT (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)
, in reply, said, that neither the County Council nor the Joint Committee of the Quarter Sessions and County Council will have transferred to them any powers with regard to any Assize Court which are not now possessed by the Quarter Sessions of the county. The Local Government Bill will not interfere with the powers of the Town Council of a borough as to their control over buildings which belong to the borough, and which are used for the Assize Courts.
