HC Deb 23 July 1891 vol 356 c135
SIR J. LUBBOCK (London University)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether Her Majesty's Government will give facilities to enable me to pass the London County Council (Water Supply, &c.) Bill in the form recommended by the Select Committee?


No, Sir. I understand that the Bill is highly contentious, and it would be contrary to our pledges to give such facilities.

MR. J. STUART (Shoreditch, Hoxton)

Will any steps be taken to allow the London County Council to expend money?


It would require to be introduced in a General Powers Bill.
