§ MR. PICKARD (York, W.R., Normanton)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether it is a fact that where the population is over 4,000 the Ordnance Survey shall be made on a scale of 1–500 free of cost; if so, whether he can state why the Director General of the Ordnance Survey has declined to make such survey in the parish of Rothwell, in Yorkshire?
§ * MR. RITCHIE
Surveys on the 1–500 scale are only made free of cost in the case of compact towns having a population of over 4,000, and not in the case of districts in which the population is scattered over a consider- 864 able area. It was for this reason that the Director General of the Ordnance Survey declined to make a survey on the scale referred to in the parish of Rothwell, in Yorkshire.
