General Board upon the several matters with respect to which he was directed to inquire, and upon certain other matters in respect of which he deemed it expedient to report for the purposes of that Act.

And whereas copies of the said Report, accompanied by a notice stating that written statements might be forwarded to the said Board with respect to any matter contained in or omitted from the said Report, or any amendment proposed to be made therein, have been duly published and deposited as directed by the said Public Health Act; and the time for forwarding such statements has now elapsed, and no such statements have been received by the said Board.

And whereas it having appeared to the said General Board that the boundary which might be most advantageously adopted for the purposes of the said Act was not the same as that of the said Township with respect to which the said inquiry had been made, the said Board caused the aforesaid William Ranger to visit the parts within the boundary proposed to be adopted for the purposes of the said Act.

And whereas the said Superintending Inspector, after having given such notice as is required by the said Act, did hear all persons desirous of being heard before him on the subject of the said Report, and of the boundary proposed to be adopted for the purposes of the said Act; and did make further inquiry, and report according to the directions of the said Board.

And whereas copies of such further Report, accompanied by a notice stating that, within the time directed by the said Act, written statements might be forwarded to the said Board with respect to any matter contained in or omitted from the said Report, or any amendment proposed to be made therein, have been duly published and deposited as required by the said Act; and the time for forwarding such statements has now elapsed, and no such statements have been received by the said Board.

And whereas it appears upon such Reports that there is a certain Local Act of Parliament in force within the said Township having relation to the purposes of the said Public Health Act; that is to say,

An Act passed in the fourth year of the reign of King
George the Fourth, intituled “ An Act for better sup-

plying with Water the Town of Skipton in the West

“ Riding of the County of York."
