CARNARVON AND THE ELECTRIC LIGHT HRXV ATE (BELL TO BE PROMOTED. At the adjourned meeting! of the Carnarvon Town Council to be held' to-night^ reprorts will be presented with reference to the electric flight, and the question of promoting a private Recently the Electricity 'Committee of the Corporation had an interview at Carnarvon with Mr D. Lloyd -George, the (President of the -Board of Trade, when the position of the Cor- poration under their electric lighting agree- ment was discussed. Mr Lloyd George in- formed them that they might depend upon the Board of Trade doing everything within their power to help them, and he requested them to send him a statement of the position of affairs together with a copy of Mr MaoMorran's opin- ion on the agreement. He would then see the IPresident of the (Local Government Board, or Runciman_j and^ endeavour to overcome their objection to the'sanctioning of the further loans required. If he could save the town the ex- lpemse of a private Bill, he would do so. After -i.Mr Xrloyd-George's return to London a letter was sent to him reminding him that the matter was becoming urgent, and be replied saying that he had been unablEhto see the President of the Local Government Board owing to ab- sence, but would! attend to the matter on his return. In view of the fact that the advertise- ments of the private iBill must appear at the latest on the following November, it was re- solved that a deputation should see .Mr Lloyd- George in London and endeavour to obtain a settlement, and, should it be necessary to pro- ceed with, a private iBrll, the Town Clerk was authorised to engage a Parliamentary agent and procea- as far as possible with the, busi- ness. At a subsequent meeting of the committee the Town Clerk reported that he had not been able to make an appointment with the President of the (Board of Trade, consequently the de- putation (had not proceeded to (London. The Accountant, however, reported that he had called at the offices of the IBoard of Trade to inquire what was being done. He wa.s informed by IMr ILJoyd-George's private secretary that Mr Lloyd-George thought the best course for the Council to pursue would be to proceed with the promotion of a private Bill on the lines of the draft Bill which they had already sub- mitted to him. In the meantime the question was being carefully considered by the Board of Trade in conjunction with their legal ad- visers, and should it be possible by any action of the Board to relieve the Council of the neces- sity of proceeding further with the 'Bill, the Council would be informed of the fact without delay. Should it be necessary for the ;Bill to be carried through Parliament, Mr Lloyd- George would do all in his power to facilitate 'its progress. The secretary further stated. ■ inat at Mr Lloyd-George,s Tequest he had that morning 'been across to the offices of the Local Government Board to inquire whether it was possible to obtain the sanction to borrow suffi- cient for their present requirements. The Board informed him that it was not within theii power to give the sanction applied for, and under those circumstances he advised the Council to dismiss from their minds all hope of obtaining the sanction until the difficulty had 'been settled. The Accountant further reported I that he had calledi at the offices of the Local Government Board with a view to obtaining their apprval to the draft Bill. The Board, was not prepared to give a formal approval, although they did not see that there was any- thing in the proposals to which they could ob- ject. In order to facilitate matters, they re- quested to be supplied with a full statement and the reasons for promoting the Bill, together with a copy of-the correspondence showing the: attitude of the Board of Trade on the ques- tion. ( 4Councillor W. G. Thomas has 'given notice that he will move at to-nig'ht<'s meeting of the Council that a Bill be promoted in the next. session of Parliament to authorise and confirm certain agreements made between the Council; and the National Electric Construction Com- pany, and to make provision for defraying the expense which has been incurred, and which, from time to time, may be incurred under the said agreements, and to enable the Council to borrow for the purposes of the said a,rieeltlents. j
