HC Deb 05 July 1897 vol 50 c1115
MR. W. WOODALL (Hanley)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether, seeing that the Report of the City of London Livery Companies Commission of 1884 does not afford full information as to tine bye-laws or ordinances of the Plumbers' Company, a copy of the charter and of the bye-laws, and a statement as to tine present resources of the Company could be laid upon the Table of the House prior to the further consideration of the Plumbers' Registration Bill?


I stated in reply to a Question on the 21st June that I had no doubt that if it were desired, the Company would cause to be furnished a brief statement of the constitution and resources of the Company which might, if it were moved for, be laid on the Table of the House. But no motion for any such return has been made. I do not know if it would be possible to obtain it now, before Wednesday, when the Plumbers' Registration Bill is to be considered.
