asked the Minister of Health whether he proposes this Session to introduce the legislation dealing with private street works foreshadowed on page 125 of his 11th Annual Report?
The passage in the Annual Report to which the hon. Member refers comments on the fact that in the urban areas of England and Wales there are two alternative codes of law relating to private street works, differing in matters of substance. Legislation is not practicable at the present time. I may point out, however, that the Private Street Works Act, 1892, which is the later code, can be adopted by resolution of the urban authority.
