HC Deb 30 May 1906 vol 158 c393
MR. WILES (Islington, S.)

To ask the President of the Local Government Board whether all the registration authorities or overseers in London have complied with the terms of the circular of the Local Government Board, issued on April 26th, 1906, as to the instructions with regard to the preparation of the lists of inhabitant occupiers, in consequence of the decision in the case of Kent v. Fittall; and if not, which of these authorities or overseers have not complied.

(Answered by Mr. John Burns.) In one instance, viz., at Islington, some difficulty has been felt in giving effect to the suggestion in the circular, and I am in communication with the borough council on the subject. I am not aware of any other case in London in which the suggestion has not been complied with.
