HC Deb 08 September 1893 vol 17 cc663-4
MR. KNOWLES (Salford, W.)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the nuisance arising from the Manchester Ship Canal has become dangerous to the health of the inhabitants of the County Borough of Salford and the neighbourhood; and whether, as suggested by the Council, he will direct a Government inquiry to be held as to the best means of dealing with the subject?


This question appeared on the Paper only this morning. It will require some communication to take place between the Local Government Board and the Salford authorities, and I must, therefore, ask the hon. Member to postpone it.
