§ MR. WHITMORE (Chelsea)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether, with a view to giving to the County Council and the Local Authorities of London full opportunities for the consideration of the provisions of the Loudon (Equalisation of Rates) Bill, he will name a date before which its Second Reading will not be taken; and whether he can fix an approximate date for its Second Reading?
§ * MR. H. H. FOWLER
This question has been virtually answered by the Prime Minister. Due notice will be given of the Second Reading of the Bill, and I have every reason to believe that the Local Authorities of London will have ample time for the consideration of the provisions of the Bill.
