said Act and the Local Government Act, 1858, are respectively in force within and for the District of Preston aforesaid.

And whereas the said Local Board of Health received authority from the General Board of Health, under the Public Health Act, 1848, to borrow a sum of 55,0001. on mortgage of the Special District Rates of the Township of Preston, which Township forms a portion of the aforesaid District, and have borrowed under such authority sums amounting in the whole to 34,8501. for the Main Drainage of such Township, and the remaining portion of the first herein-before mentioned sum of 55,0001. will be required to complete such works.

And whereas also, under the herein-before recited Acts, the said Local Board must repay the money borrowed for such works, with all interest thereon, within a period of thirty years from the date of the borrowing of such money.

And whereas the said Local Board of Health have further borrowed, on mortgage of the Rates authorized to be made under the Preston Waterworks Act, 1853, the sum of 135,225l. to defray the cost of purchasing from the Preston Waterworks Company their undertaking, and the further sum of 80,000., that being the full amount, above and exclusive of the hereinbefore mentioned purchase money, which the said Local Board are authorized to borrow under the Preston Waterworks Act aforesaid.

And whereas by that Act the said Local Board are required, in order to pay off any monies borrowed under it, to set aside in every year, from and after the expiration of five years from the passing of such Act, not less than 1,6001. as a sinking fund to be applied in paying off such monies.

And whereas the said several sums borrowed under the said Preston Waterworks Act are not sufficient to enable the said Local Board of Health to complete the Works necessary for supplying the said Borough with water, and a further sum will be required for the completion of such Works; but such further sum, with that already borrowed under the authority of the said Act, and under the authority of the Public Health Act, 1848, exceed the amount authorized to be borrowed by the several herein-before recited Acts.

And whereas the said Local Board have now, under the authority of the 78th section of the Local Government Act, 1858, petitioned me, as one of Her Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, that the time allowed for the repayment of loans borrowed or to be borrowed on account of the Main Drainage Works within the aforesaid district of Preston may be extended from thirty to fifty years ; that the time provided and fixed by the Preston Waterworks Act, 1853, (sec. 56,) for the commencement of a sinking fund to be applied under the provisions of that Act in paying off the money borrowed or to be borrowed on account of the waterworks of the aforesaid District, may be extended; and that the said Local Board may

be

be empowered to borrow (for the completion of the Works for supplying water to such District), on mortgage of the Waterworks and Water Rates under the provisions of the Preston Waterworks Act, 1853, and of the rates leviable by the Preston Local Board of Health under the powers of the Public Health Act, 1848, and of the Local Government Act, 1858, such further sum or sums of money as, together with the amount already borrowed under the said several Acts, shall not exceed in the whole two years assessable value of the premises assessable within the District in respect of which such further sum or sums may be borrowed.

And whereas, after due inquiry and report by William Ranger esquire, the inspector appointed by me for the purpose, I am of opinion that the prayer of such petition should be granted; but the same cannot be done without the consent of Parliament.

Now, therefore, in pursuance of the powers now vested in me as one

of Her Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State as aforesaid, I do hereby, by this Provisional Order under my hand, direct as follows:

That from and after the passing of any Act of Parliament confirming this present Order1.- The Local Board of Health for the District of Preston

aforesaid shall have power and authority to borrow or to reborrow for the completion of the works for supplying water to that District, and on mortgage of their Waterworks and of the rates leviable under the authority of the Preston Waterworks Act, 1853, and of the Public Health Act, 1848, and Local Government Act, 1858, such a sum or sums of money as shall not, together with the amount already borrowed, exceed in the whole two years assessable value of the premises within the District in respect of which such sum or sums may be so borrowed or reborrowed; the said borrowing or reborrowing of such further sum or sums of money for the completion of such works being subject to the provisions of the Local Government Act, 1858, and of the Preston Waterworks Act, 1853, in respect to the borrowing of money on

security of the Rates leviable under such Acts. 2.-The period within which the Preston Local Board of

Health should, under the Provisions of the Public Health Act, 1848, and of the Local Government Act, 1858, repay the amount borrowed or to be borrowed by them on security of the rates leviable under the said Acts, to defray the cost of the Main Drainage Works executed by them within such, District, be extended from thirty years to a period of fifty years from the date of the borrowing thereof within which period of fifty years such amount

borrowed

borrowed for the execution of such Main Drainage Works shall, with all interest thereon, be

repaid. 3.-Section 56 of the Preston Waterworks Act, 1853, be

repealed, so far as it fixes the date at which the said Local Board of Health shall commence setting aside an annual sum to provide a sinking fund for the purposes therein set forth, and that in order to pay off the monies borrowed under the authority of the said Act, such Local Board of Health shall, in every year after the expiration of seven years from the passing of the Act confirming this Order, set apart not less than one thousand six hundred pounds as a sinking fund, for the purposes and in the manner set forth in the aforesaid fifty-sixth section of the said Preston Waterworks Act.
