§ Sir C. YATE
asked the Minister of Health whether he has issued an Order that any member of a rural district council who applies for and receives a certificate entitling him to the Government subsidy for a cottage he is erecting cannot hold his position on the council and receive the grant; and, if so, for what reason?
§ Mr. WHEATLEY
I have not issued, and have no power to issue, such an Order. The disqualification arises from a provision in the Local Government Act, 1894.
