HC Deb 08 April 1902 vol 105 c1258
MR. DAVID MORGAN (Essex, Walthamstow)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether the power to use funds out of the rates in connection with the Coronation celebrations will be extended to Parish Councils; and, if not, may District Councils allocate certain sums to the various parishes.


The matter referred to has been under my consideration, and I propose to include Parish Councils in the Order which I am about to issue, sanctioning reasonable expenditure out of the rates in respect of the celebration of the Coronation.
