§ COLONEL HUGHES (Woolwich)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, whether the London vestries can legally establish a Labour Exchange out of the moneys raised by them in pursuance of the Metropolitan Management Act, 1855?
§ MR. SHAW-LEFEVRE
The Local Government Board have no jurisdiction with regard to the expenditure of the rates raised by London Vestries. As a matter of fact, a number of Vestries have established Labour Exchanges.
