§ MR. BARROW (Southwark, Bermondsey)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board when the Rules and Regulations for the conduct of the London Vestry elections, under the Local Government Bill (England and Wales), will be issued; and whether the clerks to the various Vestries will be appointed returning officers for the Vestry elections in the same way as the clerks to the Unions are now the returning officers for the elections of Guardians?
§ * MR. SHAW LEFEVRE
The existing members of Vestries elected under the Metropolis Management Acts will continue in office until the elections which are to take place in November next have been held. The necessary Regulations will be issued in ample time for those elections, but I cannot at present state more precisely when they will be issued.
