To the Town Council Health Committee
Beg to Report,
That they have under their consideration the desirability of purchasing the land vested in the Principle Secretary of State of war, in accordance with the provisions of the Corporation Act, 1883.
Your Committee, have however, have ascertained that the Vicar of Basford is willing to sell to the Corporation a portion of the Glebe Lands for the purpose of erecting thereon an Infectious Diseases Hospital. As the Vicar is under disability and can sell under the Land Clauses Consolidation Act, under which act the price must be ascertained by arbitration, your Committee advice that they should be authorised to conclude all necessary arrangements with the Vicar for acquiring so much land as your Committee shall find to be necessary, and under the purchase money and costs should be raised on mortgage of the General District Rate, under the direction of the Finance Committee.
