§ MR. WOODALL (Hanley)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board when the Bill authorising the Decennial Census will be brought in; whether the Departmental Committee, relative to the Census, have made their Report; and whether it is intended to present the Report to Parliament?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. RITCHIE,) Tower Hamlets, St. George's
I am not in a position at present to give any information as to the date when the Bill authorising the next Census will be brought in. The Departmental Committee referred to have made their Report, and it is under the consideration of the Government. The Report will shortly be presented to Parliament.
