91. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether an application for a Provisional Order to amend the Basingstoke Local Act of 1815 and 1829 so as to provide for the audit of all the accounts of the corporation and their officers by the district auditor appointed by the Local Government Board, in like manner as the accounts of an urban authority and their officers are audited under the Public Health Act, 1875, if made by the Basingstoke Corporation under Section 303 of the Public Health Act, 1875, could be granted?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Long)
I am advised that it would be competent to my Department to make a Provisional Order for the purpose mentioned. If the corporation decide to apply for such an Order I suggest that they should consult the Department upon the mode of proceeding.
