HL Deb 24 April 1891 vol 352 c1271

House in Committee (according to order).


I have to ask your Lordships to assent to one or two Amendments upon this Bill. It is to confirm an Order by the Boundaries Commissioners who have been selected under the Local Government (Scotland) Act. The object of the Amendments is simply to make one or two alterations which have been found necessary in consequence of misunderstanding by the Boundary Commissioners in making their Order. One of the misapprehensions was that the boundaries of the Burgh of Stirling were co-terminous as regards the municipal boundaries and the boundaries of the Royal Burgh; and the other was as to an understanding or an arrangement previously come to between the Parishes of Stirling and St. Ninians. With those observations I will ask your Lordships to assent to the Amendments which I now propose.

Amendments made; Standing Committee negatived; Report of Amendments to be received on Monday next.
