§ COLONEL DALBIAC (Camberwell, N.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether a householder resident in any portion of a parish transferred by the Boundary Commission, appointed under the London Government Act of 1899, to another parish is eligible for election on the 1st November, 1900, as a borough councillor for the municipal borough from which he has been transferred, either as a parochial elector or as a resident in the parish twelve months prior to the election.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Sleaford
The Local Government Board have no jurisdiction and no authority to pronounce any opinion with regard to this matter. It is one of the questions which can be dealt with by an Order in Council under Section 27 (1) (c) of the London Government Act, 1899. I have, however, communicated with the Commissioners, and I understand that the subject is being or will be considered by them and the Privy Council.
