HC Deb 21 June 1897 vol 50 cc433-4
MR. B. L. COHEN (Islington, E.)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he is aware that the Royal Commission on the Water Supply of London have been unable to commence their inquiry in consequence of no rooms having been assigned to the Commission to hold their sittings; and whether he can state when the necessary accommodation will be provided and the inquiry commenced?


I am informed that the Commissioners held their first meeting on May 29, when temporary accommodation was provided for them. Offices have since been assigned to the Commission, and I am advised that the Inquiry is proceeding.
