HC Deb 20 December 1906 vol 167 c1719
MR. BRIGG (Yorkshire, W.R., Keighley)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board if he will consider the desirability of introducing a Bill in the next session of Parliament to comprise the various clauses allowed during the sessions of 1904, 1905, and 1906, by the Police and Sanitary Committee in improvement Bills promoted by municipal and sanitary authorities, so as to enable local authorities without incurring the expense of promoting a Private Bill, to adopt all or any of the powers conferred by those clauses in the same manner as has been allowed by Parliament in the case of the Infectious Disease Prevention Act and the Public Health Amendment Act of 1890.


I will give early consideration to the suggestion, but I cannot make any promise as to the introduction of a Bill next session.
