§ MR. HARRY SAMUEL (Tower Hamlets, Limehouse)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether the Royal Commission on the Water Supply of London has yet commenced its inquiry; if not, whether he can state what are the reasons for the delay, and when it is expected the inquiry will begin?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. HENRY CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Sleaford
The Royal warrant appointing the Commissioners was received on May 6, but little more than a week ago. The question as to the provision of accommodation for 616 the Commission has not yet been settled, but when the preliminary arrangements are made a meeting of the Committee will be held on an early day.
§ MR. T. LOUGH (Islington, W.)
asked whether the right hon. Gentleman could give any information as to the details of the Bill for the benefit of the London consumers.
