HC Deb 18 May 1893 vol 12 c1277
MR. BILL (Staffordshire, Leek)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he has considered the Memorial of the inhabitants of the township of Leek and Lowe, which was sent to him on the 13th of February last, with reference to an increase in the number of the Guardians for that township on the Board of Guardians for the Leek Union; and whether he is disposed to comply with the prayer of the Memorial?


The communication referred to contained certain proposals for the grouping of parishes, for the purpose of the election of Guardians, by the Local Government Board. But the Board have no power under which they could give effect to these proposals. The township of Leek and Lowe appears to have a claim to further representation; and the Board propose to issue an Order in the matter.
