HC Deb 24 May 1909 vol 5 c988W

asked the President of the Local Government Board how many county councils, county borough councils, and district councils, respectively, have put section 85 of the Public Health Acts (Amendment) Act, 1907, into operation?


I beg to answer this question on behalf of my right hon. Friend. On the application of the local authorities concerned, I have made Orders declaring section 85 of the Public Health Acts (Amendment) Act to be in force in 33 boroughs and 32 urban districts. The Act does not empower a county council to apply for an Order.
