HC Deb 25 February 1895 vol 30 cc1481-2
MR. LEONARD COURTNEY (Cornwall, Bodmin)

I beg to ask the President of this Local Government Board whether a member of a Parish Council can take or hold an allotment under the Council?


If a member of a Parish Council takes an allotment under the Council the question will arise whether he thereby becomes disqualified for holding his office of Councillor. I have no power to decide this question, but, according to the best opinion I have been able to form, he is not disqualified.
