§ MR. COURTHOPE
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board when the orders authorising the adoption of the Public Health Act, 1907, will be issued.
§ MR. MASTERMAN
The Local Government Board have been in communication with a considerable number of local authorities with regard to cases under the Act. In several instances the statutory requirements have now been complied with, and the orders will, 1106 I hope, be issued at an early date. As regards others, communications are still proceeding.
