HC Deb 01 March 1912 vol 34 c1790W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to the case of a closing order made on 12th January, 1911, by the Hampstead Borough Council against Mr. William Arlidge in respect of No. 83 Palmerston Road; whether he is aware that at the present time there are two appeals pending to the Local Government Board arising out of such order, and that a public local inquiry was held on the 8th December last in respect of the first of such appeals, but no order has yet been made on such appeal; and what is the explanation of this delay?


I am aware of the facts of the case referred to by the hon. Member. The Order deciding the matter was signed by me on the 26th instant, and copies were sent to the parties yesterday.
