§ SIR BERNHARD SAMUELSON (Oxfordshire, Banbury)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board what steps are being taken by the Board in reference to making Provisional Orders, as directed by Section 52 of the Local Government Act of last Session, in the case of boroughs and sanitary districts in the same area, and when such Provisional Orders will be 1272 introduced for confirmation by Parliament?
§ * THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL. GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. RITCHIE,) Tower Hamlets, St. George's
The Local Government Board have in each of the cases referred to directed a local inquiry by one of their inspectors, and the several inquiries have now been held. The preparation of the Orders which are required is being proceeded with, but before the Orders are issued the drafts will be forwarded to the local authorities. There will be no delay that can be avoided in submitting the Orders to Parliament for Confirmation.
