HL Deb 06 July 1875 vol 225 c997

(Urban authority may provide place for public meetings, &c.) Where an urban authority are a local board or improvement commissioners they may, with the consent of the owners and ratepayers of their district expressed in manner provided by Schedule III. to this Act, provide and maintain for the purpose of holding public meetings and other like purposes, a suitable building or room, and may let the same to any person as and when they think fit, and may from time to time make regulations for the use and management of the same.


said, the proposed clause had been rejected by the House of Commons on the ground that it would interfere with local taxation, and he did not think it would be seemly under these circumstances to re-insert it in the Bill.

On Question? Resolved in the Negative.

Clause agreed to.

Amendments moved and negatived; Amendments made, the Report thereof to be received on Thursday the 15th instant; and Bill to be printed, as amended. (No. 201.)
