HC Deb 07 September 1909 vol 10 cc1283-4W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he has yet come to a decision regarding the Report, which has been under his considera- tion since before 3rd August, 1909, of his inspector, Mr. A. G. Drury, upon the inquiry into the subject of constituting Earby a separate urban district; and whether he can now say what is the nature of his award?


I propose to issue an Order confirming, subject to certain modifications, the order of the county council in the matter referred to. I sent a draft of the Confirming Order to the county council on the 20th August, and have since been in communication with them regarding it.
