§ MR. THOMAS ELLIS (Merionethshire)
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he intends this Session to make any Provisional Orders for transferring, under section 10 of "The Local Government Act, 1888," powers of certain Government Departments and other authorities to the County Councils of England and Wales; and, if so, whether such Provisional Orders will be submitted to Parliament at an early date?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. RITCHIE,) Tower Hamlets, St. George's
It is intended to make a Provisional Order for transferring certain powers of Government Departments to the County Councils of England and Wales, and I hope to submit the Order to Parliament at an early date. It is not proposed by the Order to deal with the powers of any other authorities.
