HL Deb 12 May 1884 vol 288 cc5-6

Moved for, Return of all proceedings instituted in the county courts in England and Wales for the prevention of the pollution of rivers under the 'Rivers Pollution Prevention Act, 1876,' and the result of such proceedings (ordered to be laid before the House on the 29th of May 1883)."—(The Duke of Northumberland.)


said, he had to express regret that there had been some delay in this matter. It occurred in consequence of the Notice being inadvertently referred to the wrong Department; but he could assure the noble Duke that there should be no further delay, and the Papers should be laid at the Table at the earliest possible time.

Motion agreed, to; Return ordered forthwith.
