§ SIR GEORGE FARDELL (Paddington, S.)
I beg to ask the President of the i Local Government Board whether the questions of adjustment between parishes under schemes prepared in accordance with the provisions of the London Government Act, 1899, will be dealt with by the existing vestries and district boards, or whether it is intended that such matters shall be left open for settlement by the now borough councils in November next; and whether, if the first course is to be adopted, he will move the Boundary Commissioners to have the inquiries held before the end of July, as otherwise the various parishes interested will be prejudiced owing to the long vacation depriving them of the services of their accustomed legal advisers.✶ See The Parliamentary Debates [Fourth Series] Vol. lxxix., page 1432.
§ MR. CHAPLIN
I learn from the Commissioners under the London Government Act that they do not propose that the proceedings in connection with adjustments under the Act should commence before the new borough councils have been constituted.
