§ MR. CUNINGHAME GRAHAM (Lanark, N.W.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that the clerk of the Newington Vestry is alleged to refuse to make any later Annual Report than one dated 1887, though requested to do so by the Vestry; and will he order an inquiry into the matter?
§ MR. RITCHIE
The Vestry clerk of the Parish of Newington is not subject in any way to the jurisdiction of the Local Government Board, and the Board are not empowered to order an inquiry into the matter to which the hon. Member refers.
