By section 44 of the Public Health Act, 1875, (38 and 39 Vict. c. 55), it is enacted that “where " the Local Authority do not themselves undertake

or contract for“ The cleansing of footways and pavements

adjoining any premises ; “ The removal of house refuse from any premises ; “ The cleansing of earthclosets, privies, ashpits,

" and cesspools belonging to any premises ; “ they may make byelaws imposing the duty of such

cleansing or removal, at such intervals as they “ think fit, on the occupier of any such premises."

On reference to section 42 it will be seen that every Local Authority may, and when required by order of the Local Government Board shall, themselves, undertake or contract for the removal of house refuse from premises, and the cleansing of earth closets, privies, ashpits, and cesspools, either for the whole or any part of their district. Moreover, every Urban Authority, and any Rural Authority invested by the Local Government Board with the requisite powers may, and when required by order of the Board shall, themselves, undertake or contract for the proper cleansing of streets.

In such cases the necessity for byelaws under the first part of section 44 ceases.

With regard to the scope of byelaws under that enactment, it should be observed that the byelaws must be limited to imposing upon the occupier the duty of cleansing or removal, at such intervals as the Sanitary Authority may think fit. The mode of cleansing or removal, and the precautions to be observed in connexion with the process are not matters within the range of such bjelaws.
