PROPOSED FIRE BRIGADE FOR BARRY. A DEPUTATION TO THE LOCAL BOARD. At a meeting of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board, held on Tuesday last, a deputation, con- sisting of Messrs H. Chappell, D. W. Howell, J. H. Nelmes, and H. L. Gordon, attended for the pur- pose of urging upon the Local Board the desirability of assisting in the formation of a volunteer fire brigade for the Barry district. The deputation was introduced by Mr Benjamin Lewis, who said he considered the time had now arrived when proper means should be provided to cope with a serious outbreak of fire.—Mr H. Chappell pointed out the urgent need for the establishment of a duly organised fire brigade, and said that unless something in this direction was done. in the event of a fire taking place in any of the large buildings in the district, the present facilities would not be able to cope with the disaster, in fact, he had been informed that the water pressure was not sufficient to reach many of the higher buildings.—Mr H. L. Gordon detailed. a scheme whereby an efficient volunteer fire brigade could be established at a cost of about £ 650.—Mr J. H. Nelmes expressed a hope that the Local Board would see its way clear to assist in the formation of the movement.—The Chairman (Dr O'Donnell) remarked that fire extinguishing appliances had already supplied to each part of the district, but it was for the Local Board to consider whether it was time to provide a more compre- hensive system.-A discussion followed, and it was eventually resolved that the Chairman. Major- General Lee. Dr. Treharne. Messrs J. J. Williams, F. P. Jones-Lloyd and W. Thomas (auctioneer) be a committee to take the entire question into consideration, and report thereon at the next meeting of the board.
