§ MR. CAUSTON (Southwark, W.)
I wish to ask the Secretary of the Local Government Board a question of which I have given him private notice—namely, whether it is proposed to substitute the words "town clerk of the borough" for the words "clerk of the county council" wherever the latter words appears in all the draft Orders in Council constituting metropolitan boroughs.
§ *THE SECRETARY TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. T. W. RUSSELL,) Tyrone, S.
The hon. Member could not have been present when the 1533 discussion took place the other night on this point.* It is not possible to entertain the idea of substitution in the scheme. It is proposed, however, if possible, to add the name of town clerk to that of clerk of county councils, and the addition will apply to all the Draft Orders.
