§ Mr. SEALE-HAYNE (Devon, Ashburton)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether a rural district council is liable to repair all highways, as defined by 5 and 6 Will. IV. c. 50, which had been maintained b the previous district highway hoard up to the date of its dissolution on the passing of The Local Government Act, 1891?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. H. CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Sleaford
When the powers of a Highway Board have been transferred to a Rural District Council under Section 25 of the Local Government Act, 1894, the District Council are bound to maintain any highways which the Highway Board were bound to maintain.
