§ Sir K. WOOD
The question of Poor Law reform is being closely considered, but my right hon Friend is afraid that he cannot at present anticipate the proposals which he hopes in due course to submit in this connection.
§ Mr. POTTS
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the Bradford Corporation is seeking by that Bill to acquire certain powers, now vested in boards of guardians, and when that Bill comes before this House, will he undertake not to allow it to go through except by a general law affecting the whole country?
