"IN CAMERA I NEATH COUNCIL AND GAS UNDER- TAKING A special meeting of the Neath Town Council was held on Monday afternoon further to consider matters regarding the gas undertaking, which, is corporation property, and in connection with which various rumours ha.ve been in circulation since Councillor John Morris stated at a public meeting of the council some weeks ago that- it was in a deplorable condition. Members of the press presented them- selves at the Gwyn Hall, where the meet- ing was held, but were refused admis- sion by two stalwart policemen stationed at the door. AUDIT CLERK APPOINTMENT I The report of the gas committee, which. sat for nearly three hours at the works on Thursday last,, was read. It em- bodied a recommendation that the Coun- cil appoint an audit clerk to investigate the affairs of the gas undertaking and put the accounts in order. An amount of acrimony was introduced into the discussion which followed, and which lasted a.bout two hours. Eventually, however, it was decided to adopt the recommendation of the com- mittee, and applications will be invited by the ga committee from firms of ac- countants of recognised standing from Cardiff to London in connection with the appointment. Meantime Mr R. A. Williams, the as- sista-nt overseer at Neath, will be ap- pointed to assist in the collection of out- standing accounts in connection with the gas undertaking. ââââââ
