§ MR. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the final or further Report of the Royal Commission on the Treatment and Disposal of Sewage, which was appointed in 1898, is expected to be ready.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. John BURNS,) Battersea
Perhaps I may answer this Question. I understand that the Royal Commission hope to issue a further Report before the end of the year. I also understand that the investigation of the disposal of trade effluents when not mixed with sewage, which will form the subject of the final Report of the Commission, has been commenced.
