=======.=====-====———= GORSEINON WATER AND DRAIN-, AGE SCHEME. SWANSEA GOVERNMENT INQUIRY HELD IN PRIVATE. At Swansea District Council Offices on Tiwsday A Local Government Board en- quiry was held into Gorsemcn water and drainage scheme, for which work £14000 is required. The inquiry was conducted by Co. Slacke, R.E., who at the outset intimated that the proceedings would be conducted in private, and asked the press to retire. j It will be recalled that last summer an inquiry was held at Qorseinon into the mat- ter, but on that occasion Cockett Parish Council, through its representatives, ob- jected to the apportionments. That diffi- culSy baa now, we understand, been re- moved, and all now necessary was to make the hnal application for borrowing the money. Thoee present included Major Lewis (chairman of the District Council), Messrs J. W. Johnston (vice-chairman), J. H. Ros- ser, F. H. Glynn Prioe, Ben Mathews D Jones, and John Bevan and Ben Jones of the Cockett Council. Mr. E. Harris (clerk to the Council), Mr. Morgan Davies (en- gineer), and Mr. T. T. Williams (surveyor), were also present. COCKETT PARISH'S OBJECTIONS. At the conclusion of the inquiry we were informed that the whole matter was gone into again. Discussion took place as to how the figures of the apportionment were ar- rived at, whether by the rateable value of the parish it was proposed to serve by ',ha scheme or upon the whole population of the several parishes. Colonel Slack also gave a. hearing to the Cockett Parish overseers re their objections to the apportionments, and Mr. J. Bevan, an overseer, was asked by the inspector to mention his alternative proposition, and the inspector pointed out that in arriving at h* figures Mr. Bevan disregarded the rate- able value of the parish. It transpired after Mr. Bevan's &1- ternative proposition that he only differed from the Council apportionment by £200. and that this amount was spread over a period of thirty years for repayment, and only came to about £7 per annum. The District Council on this difference alone. thought that all difficulties ought to bo I brushed aside. The inspector's report will be made known in due course.
