§ Read 3a (according to order) with the Amendments.
LORD STANLEY OF ALDERLEY
I had given notice of an Amendment of a sanitary nature with regard to the removal of gravel, in consequence of the last London School Board scandal, when the offensive refuse had to be removed at a certain school from under the floor at a cost of £150. Since I have come into the House I have been informed that the Bylaws of 1879 of the old Metropolitan Board of Works, which are binding upon the County Council, provide entirely for this defect, but what is the use of those Bylaws, if, as in that case, the District Surveyor does not carry them out? I therefore do not propose to move my Amendment.
§ An Amendment made.
§ Bill passed, and returned to the Commons.
