"MUST MAKE AN QJIDElt" 1 SWANSEA CRAY ASSISSMENT. IftECON CHAIRMAN INTER- VIEWED. Mr. Owen Price, chairman of the Brecon Assessment Committee, was in Swansea on Tuesday. A Daily Post reporter managed to come across him, and a little chat followed. r. rice ret erred to the 8urrunons taken out against the Swansea Corporation for the non-payment of the rate due on tho Cray Reservoir works. 1 can not tell you," he said, what the magistrates will do, but to my mind they must make an order for payment, and if the money is not forthcoming, we will have to distrain and may come down to Swansea. "Not got an eye of taking the Town Hall'! said the scribe jocularly. Mr. Owen Price smiled, and said: We shan't act vindictively at all; indeed, aU along we have offered the Corporation fair .errns. Fresh terms'; Oh, nothing sincc the trial, but before thar we did everything we could to get in- formation to go upon. Of course, we never had any of those figures (given at the trial) although we had written for them. For six months they (the Corporation) treated us like as if we were children." The reporter suggested f-hat the basis of i valuation was the bone of contention, but Mr. Price pointed out thaJ Cardiff and Mert-hyr paid on the same basis of an allow ance on cost of construction. He considered the Cray assessment a. very f;ur one having regard to tho f'MX that it leaked out at the Quarter tho fact that it leaked out at the Quarter Sessions appeal that the cost, including in- terest, ran up to £ 700,000. Then as to the Bench being judges in their own cause, he eaid that one of the justices was Colonel D. 11 Lewis, of Merthyr. whilst another ca«me from Radnorshire. "I don't think you could get a more impartial Bench in the county,' added Mr. Price, "but, of course, that is a matter for them." "Anyhow, you intend to press your claim? Certainly we must do something to get tin matter settled, because it is very unfair; for the ratepayers of Breconehire to be treated in the way they have been treated. The treatment that we received LAS been something contemptible all through." In the course of other conversation, Mr. Price mentioned that the Swansea Corpora- tjofl had already entered an appeal against the coming rate, although it has not vet. been made.
