HC Deb 24 April 1890 vol 343 cc1383-4

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Motion made, and Question proposed, That it is expedient to authorise the payment, out of moneys to be provided by Parliament, of a portion of the Costs, Charges, and Expenses (to an amount not exceeding £50,000), which have been or may be incurred by the Drainage Board, for the River Sack Drainage. —(Mr. Jackson.)


I think some explanation is due to us.


The explanation is very simple, and I should have thought the hon. Member was aware of the circumstance. It is proposed to vote £50,000 for the maintenance of drainage works in the area of the Suck River. The district has suffered most severely in the past, and a considerable amount of work has been done at the expense of the landowners, and it has been felt by the Government that the efforts of the landowners might be supplemented by a Parliamentary grant, and this is the usual Resolution upon which a Bill for the purpose will be founded.

Question put, and agreed to.

Resolution to be reported to-morrow, at Two of the clock.
