HC Deb 30 March 1914 vol 60 cc863-4W

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether it is his intention to promote legislation to amend the law in connection with the appointment of Commissioners of Sewers, constituted under an Act of Henry VIII. and subsequent amending Acts, where there is now a large population and duly elected local authorities are in existence?


The Board are considering, in conjunction with the Board of Trade, possible amendments of the Land Drainage Act, and will be glad to receive any definite suggestion on the particular point to which my hon. Friend refers.
