MIDDLESBROUGH.
Provisional Order for the Application of the Public Health Act

to the Borough of Middlesbrough, in the North Riding of the
County of York.

GENERAL BOARD OF HEALTH. WHEREAS, upon the petition of not less than one tenth of the inhabitants rated to the relief of the Poor of and within the Borough of Middlesbrough, in the North Riding of the County of York, and within the boundaries of the said borough, as fixed for the purposes of an Act passed in the sixth year of the reign of King William the Fourth, intituled “An Act to provide for the “ regulation of Municipal Corporations in England and Wales," We, the General Board of Health, appointed for the purposes of the Public Health Act, 1848, have, in pursuance of the provisions of that Act, directed William Ranger, à Superintending Inspector, appointed for the purposes of the said Act, to visit the said

Borough,

Public Health (No. 2.) Borough, within and throughout the said boundaries, and to make public inquiry, and to examine witnesses as to the sewerage, drainage, and supply of water, the state of the burial grounds, the number and sanitary condition of the inhabitants, and as to any Local Acts of Parliament in force within the said Borough, for paving, lighting, cleansing, watching, regulating, supplying with water, or improving the said Borough, or having relation to the purposes of the said Act; also as to the natural drainage areas, and the existing municipal, parochial, or other local boundaries, and the boundaries which might be most advantageously adopted for the purposes of the said Act.

And whereas the said Superintending Inspector, having previously given the notices directed by the said Act, proceeded upon the said inquiry, and hath reported in writing to the said 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 all such statements as have been received by the said Board have been duly deposited as required by that Act.

And whereas it appears upon such Report that there is a certain Local Act of Parliament in force within the said Borough, having relation to the purposes of the said Public Health Act; (that is to say,) An Act passed in the fourth and fifth years of the reign of Queen Victoria, intituled “ An Act for paving, “ lighting, watching, cleansing, and otherwise improving the “ Town of Middlesbrough, and the neighbourhood thereof, in the “ North Riding of the County of York and for establishing a “ market therein.”

And whereas it appears to the said General Board of Health to be expedient that the said Public Health Act, except as hereinafter mentioned, should be applied to the said Borough ; and that provision should be made with respect to the said Local Act of Parliament, and the partial repeal, alteration, extension, and further execution thereof; but the same cannot be done without the authority of Parliament.

Now therefore, in pursuance of the power vested in the said Board by the Public Health Act, 1848, the said General Board of Health do, by this Provisional Order under my hand and seal of office, direct:

That from and after the passing of any Act of Parliament confirming this Order, 1. In the construction of this Order, the same meanings shall

be assigned to certain expressions which are assigned to them by the section numbered 2 in the copies of “ The Public Health Act, 1848," printed by Her Majesty's Printers, unless such meanings be repugnant to or incon3 C4

expressions occur. 2. “ The Public Health Act, 1848," and every part thereof

relating to corporate districts, except the section numbered 95 in the copies of that Act printed by Her Majesty's printers, shall apply to the area comprised within the boundaries of the said Borough of Middlesbrough, as de

fined in the Charter of Incorporation of the said Borough. 3. The Mayor, Aldermen, and Burgesses of the said Borough

shall be, by the Council of the said Borough, the Local

Board of Health under the said Public Health Act. 4. Such parts of the said Local Act as are specified in the

Schedule to this Order shall be repealed, except in so far as relates to anything done before the passing of any Act of Parliament confirming this Order, and except in so far

as the same repeal any other Act or Acts of Parliament. 5. The powers, authorities, and duties of the Commissioners for

the time being acting in execution of the said Local Act shall cease; and such of them as are granted or imposed by the unrepealed parts of the said Local Act shall, so far as they are not repugnant to or inconsistent with the said Public Health Act, or this Order, or any byelaw which shall be lawfully made under the said Public Health Act, be transferred to the said Local Board of Health, and the officers and servants of the said Local Board, and shail be exercised as if they had been granted or imposed by the said Public Health Act, and for this purpose the unrepealed parts of the said Local Act shall be incorporated with the said Public Health Act as applied to the said Borough, and all places within the Limits of the said Borough shall be subject to the unrepealed parts of the said

Local Act. 6. The said Local Board shall be the Commissioners for exe

cuting the unrepealed parts of the said Local Act. 7. All property and estate of the Commissioners acting in the

execution of the said Local Act shall be transferred to the said Local Board of Health, and shall, as near as circumstances will permit, be held by the said Local Board of Health upon the same trusts, and for the same purposes,

as by such Commissioners. 8. All debts, monies, and securities for money contracted or

payable by such Commissioners, shall be satisfied by the said Local Board out of such parts of the said transferred property and estate as would have been chargeable therewith, if this Order had not been made ; and shall be paid and satisfied by the said Local Board, as by such Com

missioners. 9. Provided always, that if such property and estate be insuf

ficient for that purpose, the deficiency shall be charged upon the rates leviable under the said Public Health Act, in the parts only which would have been chargeable with such deficiency if this Order had not been made.

Public Health (No. 2.)

10. Provided also, that if such property and estate be more

than sufficient, the surplus shall be applied to the exclusive use of the same parts and to the same purposes as it would

have been if this Order had not been made. 11. All expenses which shall be incurred by the said Local

Board of Health under the unrepealed parts of the said Local Act, and which shall not be defrayed out of monies arising under such Local Acts, shall be deemed to be expenses incurred by such Board under the said Public Health Act, and shall be defrayed out of the rates under that Act (as the nature of the case may require); and the monies necessary to be raised for the purposes of such Local Act

may be raised as under the said Public Health Act. 12. Provided always, that this Order, and the repeal of the

parts of the said Local Act mentioned in the Schedule thereto, shall not prejudicially affect anything done under that Act before the passing of any Act of Parliament confirming this Order ; but notwithstanding this Order, and the Schedule thereto, all such things shall be as valid with reference to the said Local Board of Health, as if the same had been done with reference to that Board, and may be dealt with in the same manner, in all respects, as if they

related to that Board, instead of such Commissioners. 13. Provided also, that this Order, and the repeal of the parts

of the said Local Act mentioned in the Schedule thereto, shall be without prejudice to any penalties incurred under the said Local Act, but all such penalties may be recovered by the said Local Board of Health according to the provisions of this Order.

Given under my Hand and under the Seal of the

General Board of Health this Eighteenth day of
July, in the Year of our Lord One thousand eight

hundred and fifty-five.
