§ 18. Viscount SANDON
asked the Minister of Health whether in the negotiations with local authorities under the terms of the Local Government Act as to boundaries, he will lay it down as an indispensable condition that all county, district, or parish islands must be abolished?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Chamberlain)
It would not be proper for me to lay down a condition of this kind as indispensable, but it is one of the objects of the Act to do away with these anomalies, and I hope that proposals for this purpose will be submitted under the Act by the responsible local authorities.
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
The excuse is that they are remnants of a state of things which existed a good many years ago.
