§ SIR EDWARD STRACHEY (Somersetshire, S.)
To ask the President of the Local Government Board when the Return, ordered on the 17th April last, in regard to by-laws in rural districts, will be printed and circulated.
(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) In preparing the Return the Local Government Board have found it necessary to communicate with the several rural district councils, and replies in all cases have not as yet been received. I cannot at present fix a time for the issue of the Return.
