HC Deb 16 April 1889 vol 335 c608

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether the practice and rule of the Ordinance Survey Department was to survey districts with a town population of not less than 4,000 on the 1–500 scale; whether he was aware that the Mountain Ash Local Board district, now containing a town population of over 12,000, had only been surveyed on the 1–2,500 scale; and if he could state when the survey of that district upon the larger scale would be undertaken?


The question only appeared on the paper this morning, and I have not had time to obtain information. If the hon. Member will be good enough to repeat the question after the holidays I shall be glad to answer it.
