HC Deb 07 March 1895 vol 31 c561
MR. T. BAYLEY (Derbyshire, Chesterfield)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, whether, in view of the time of the year fast approaching for the appointment of overseers and assistant overseers, the Local Government Board will expedite their decisions on applications from urban district councils to have conferred upon the councils the powers mentioned in Section 33 of the Local Government Act, 1894.


There are upwards of 500 applications from urban district councils relating to the transfer to them of the power to appoint overseers, and the Local Government Board are using every effort to deal with them before the time when new overseers must be appointed.
