§ MR. CYRIL DODD (Essex, Maldon)
I beg to ask the President of thy Local Government Board whether the opinion of the Law Officers has been yet obtained upon the question of the powers of parish councils to hire land compulsorily for allotments for the use of the village tradesmen or others not employed as labourers; and, if so, whether he will inform the House what the opinion of the Law Officers was?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. SHAW-LEFEVRE, Bradford, Central)
replied that he had not yet received the opinion of the Law Officers.
§ MR. SHAW-LEFEVRE
said, he had communicated with the Law Officers, and expected shortly to receive their opinion.
