HC Deb 29 March 1904 vol 132 c972

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will state when it is intended to take steps to carry out the recommendations of the Municipal Trading Joint Committee as to the audit of borough accounts.

(Answered by Mr. A.J. Balfour.) I can only refer my hon. friend to the answer I gave yesterday to the Question put by my hon. friend the Member for the Hyde Division, † the tenor of which was that I feared there was practically no hope of being able to deal with this matter by legislation in the course of the present session.
