HC Deb 20 June 1907 vol 176 cc597-8
MR. ROWLANDS (Kent, Dartford)

To ask the President of the Local Govern- ‡ See (4) Debates, clxv. 1237-8, clxvi. 303. ment Board whether he is aware that under the sanction of the Board the Gravesend Town Council took over the Electric Lighting Order of the North-fleet District Council; and whether, seeing that the Gravesend Town Council now refuse to supply the North fleet District Council under conditions in accordance with which the Order was taken over, he will say what steps, if any, he proposes to take in the matter.

(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) The Electric Lighting Order for Northfleet was granted to the Gravesend Corporation in 1905, the Northfleet Council's Order of 1901 being revoked by the 1905 Order by consent. The time prescribed by the 1905 Order for the completion of the compulsory works prescribed by that order does not expire until 11th August next. If by that date those works are not completed, I shall be prepared to consider any representations which the Northfleet Council may make for the revocation of the Order.
