(1) For the alteration of sanitary districts, by separating Public from a rural sanitary district any town or district, in which Creland). there shall be town or township commissioners under an Act of Parliament, and constituting it an urban sanitary district, or by including it in any adjoining urban sanitary district; and also by adding any town or township so constituted to the rural sanitary district in which it is situated. Such Order can only be made upon the petition of one or other of the towns, townships, or districts whom it affects; but (under the provisions of the Local Government (Ireland) Act, 1898,1) it is only in certain circumstances that it requires confirmation by Act of Parliament.
(2) For the compulsory purchase of land under the powers of the Lands Clauses Acts (as defined by section 23 (c) of the Interpretation Act, 1889, and amended by section 8 of the Public Health (Ireland) Act, 1896), for the purposes of the Public Health (Ireland) Acts, 1878 to 1900, and other Acts incorporating provisions of those Acts with respect to Provisional Orders.
(3) For the transfer of a burial-ground from one burial board to another.
And, under the same conditions as are enacted for England by the Public Health Act, 1875, already mentioned, the Board may make Provisional Orders (4) for repealing (wholly or partially), altering, or amending local Acts ; (5) for the formation of united districts; (6) for the settlement of doubts and differences arising out of any transfer of any powers or property under the Public Health (Ireland) Acts, 1878 to 1900, or Provisional Order made thereunder; (7) for authorizing the supply of gas by an urban sanitary authority; and (8) for the constitution 2 of port sanitary authorities.

Chapter property, where such rights can be shown to interfere with County
Councils, the public need. For many years it was the Government &c. Departments alone who were entrusted with these powers ; but, more recently, a local administrative authority, viz. the county council, has been empowered, in order to facilitate the provision of allotments for the labouring classes, to make Provisional Orders for the compulsory acquisition of land where it could not be obtained by voluntary arrangement with landowners under the permissive enactments for the purpose. This power is given by the Allotments Acts, Allot
ments. 1887 and 1890, which apply to England and Wales." The first of these Acts enables the sanitary authority, upon the representation of six parliamentary electors or ratepayers in an urban district, or in a parish in a rural district, as the case may be, to petition the county authority, and the county authority (now the county council) may, thereupon, make the Provisional Order, with certain exceptions as to residential and railway property. The Act of 1890 provides that duly qualified persons in any district, not being within the limits of a borough, may appeal to the county council to make the Order, in case of a failure of the sanitary authority to take proceedings. The county council annually appoints a standing committee for the purposes of the Acts, and upon their recommendation, after a public local inquiry held by some one or more of their own body, or by some other person appointed by them, the council may make the Provisional Order. The sanitary authority or the county council, in case of appeal, is the promoter of the Provisional Order, and on the Local Government Board devolves the duty of introducing the bill for its confirmation.

XXX the Act to consider objections to the Provisional Order, to order a local inquiry on it if he thinks fit, and is enabled to refuse to introduce the bill for its confirmation.
In the case of bills for the confirmation of Orders under these Allotment Acts, it is expressly provided that the committees (in either House of Parliament) to whom they are referred may award costs by a majority.
