PROPOSED MUNICIPALIZATION. At a meeting of the Finance Committee of the Barry District Council, held under the presidency of Mr J. H. Jose, J.P., on Monday afternoon, the question of increasing the subscription to h. Nursing Association to f750 a year was discussed. A letter was now read from the treasurer of the Nursing Association (Major-General Lee, J.P.) stating that the cost of the Accident Ward was, in 1898, 9583 7s lOd, during which year five beds were maintained. Since the opening of the new Nurses Home two beds had been addt-d to the Ward and the cost for 1899 already amounted to f668 4s 4d. It was estimated that the cost of seven beds in 1900 would be E883. The Clerk said there were two courses open to the Council either to pay the extra subscription or for the ward to be placed under their manage- ment. Mr Smith-Jones Would it not be better to eall the two Council members on the Executive Com- mittee to make a report on the subject ? The Clerk said the members of the committee were not very well informed on the subject. The committee thought it their duty to inform the Council at once, in order that they may have ample time to fally consider the matter. The Chairman The only real question is whether we are in a position to recommend to the Council that the extra sum be granted. Mr Smith-Jones asked if a more definite report could not be given as to the inner working of the Ward ? The Chairman It will give the town much more satisfaction if the Council take over the control of the Ward. It was ultimately decided that the matter be more fully gone into on Wednesday, when the Lady Superintendent of the Nursing Association and the Medical Officer be asked to attend.
