§ MR. CAMERON CORBETT (Glasgow, Tradeston)
I wish to ask the President of the Local Government Board a question, of which I have given him private notice, Can he give us any further particulars as to the public meeting at Bridgeton, Glasgow, at which he yesterday informed the House, a Resolution in favour of his proposals was passed, as no Report of such meeting appears in any of the Glasgow newspapers, and as inquiries at the police offices and the public halls have failed to elicit any information regarding it?
§ *MR. RITCHIE
I received a telegram in the House shortly before I rose. I have no information beyond that which was conveyed to me in that telegram, which is as follows:—At public meeting in Bridgeton Division of Glasgow, held in Mechanics' Hall to day, it was unanimously resolved that this meeting heartily support the Government proposals as contained in Local Taxation (Customs and Excise) Duties Bill as it now stands.WILLIAM BROWN,88, John Street,Bridgeton.
