GRESFORD PARISH COUNCIL. 4 INTERESTING QUESTIONS. A meeting of the Gresford Parish Council was held at the New Schools on Friday evening, the vice-chairman (Mr. Reginald James Jpresidkig. Prior to the commencement of the usual busi- nese Mr. G. H. F. Robertson received the con- gratulations of the members upon his selection as High Sheriff of the county for the ensuing yoar.-rphe Clerk (Mr. Charles Davies) submitted the Rural District Council's apportionment of expenses relating to the provision of a new oemotery for the administrative parishes of Greeford, LJay, Borras Hovah and Boras Riffree. Mr. James Leo complained as to the constitu- tion of the Burial Committee, stating that Rossett, which was but slightly interested, had no fewer than three representatives upon the committee, while Gresford, which had the largest interest, had but one representative. He also considered it unfair that there was so much delay in holding a Local Government Board inquiry with reference to this question. The ratepayers were being kept very much in the dark. The Chairman stated that there was no neces- sity for the District Council to eubmit these particulars to the Parish Council. Mr. W. H. Lancelot described the proposed cemetery scheme as being simply absurd. The Chairman explained that the expenditure connected with the scheme would be spread over a period of years, the total amount being paid back by annual instalments. The amount charged to each parish was ibased upon popula- tion. Mr. Barr Adams: If population is the basis of charging the cost, I can perceive no possible objection, as I consider it quite equitable. I do think, however, that the ratepayers are entitled to more information with regard to this matter. Mr. Lee moved and Mr. Lancelot seconded a resolution complaining as to the Local Govern- ment Board's delay in holding a public inquiry as to the District Council's method in the pro- vision of a new cemetery.âIt was unanimously approved. Sir Foster Cunliffe, Bart.. wrote acknow- ledging the receipt of the Parish Council's com- plaint relating to the speed of motor cars pass- ing through the village, Sir Foster stating that! the County Council was erecting notice boards warning motorists as to the dangerous places. A discussion took place with reference to the difficulty experienced by the Wrexham Fire Brigade in extinguishing the recent fire at Crow Tree Farm, owing to insufficient pressure in the water maine. Mr. Bellis observed that when a firo occurred a message ought to be at onoe sent to the Water- works officials to turn on extra pressure, which was not done upon the occasion of the recent fire at Grcsfoid. It was eventually agreed to communicate witia the Waterworks Company, suggesting that ar- rangements should be made with a view of obviating the difficulty in the future. Tho Clerk read a letter received from a house- holder in the parish, applying for an allotment of five acres, under the provisions of the new Small Holdings and Allotments Act.âit was decided to defer the application for future ocn- (lideration.
