§ MR. CAUSTON (Southwark, W.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board when the Bill postponing the County Council elections to January will he introduced?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. RITCHIE,) Tower Hamlets, St. George's
I hope to be able to introduce the Bill postponing 1188 the County Council elections in a few days, but I take the opportunity of saying that, though January was no doubt the time to which I previously stated we proposed to postpone the elections, I have received a great many representations that the month of March would be more acceptable. We, therefore, propose to put the month of March in the Bill instead of January.
