HARBOUR TRIDST SUPPORTS THE MOVEMENT. At a meeting of the Carnarvon Harbour Trust on Tuesday, Air. C. H. Clegg (chairman) pre- siding, a letter was read from the secretary to the Ratepayers' Association stating that that association had under consideration the ques- tion of the construction of a light railway be- tween Gaerwen and Foei Ferry, and that ex- pert evidence was laid before them by a pro- fessional gentleman from 'Leeds. The execu- tive committee of the association had unani- mously decided to support the scheme, and to move in the matter without delay. Seeing, however, that it was a matter of public im- portance, they were anxious to receive the sup- port of other public bodies, and they would be obliged if the Harbour Trust would nominate any number of members up to six to act on a central committee. Mr. C. A. Jones (chairman of the Rate- payers' Association) explained that the Dwy- ran District Council had had the matter under i consideration, and it was now suggested that the Town Council, the Dwyran District Coun- 1 cil, and the Harbour Trust should join the committee. It would not commit any of those bodies to anything. Mr. J. Issard Daviea You only want moral support? Mr. G. H. Rees As a Harbour Trust we have nothing to do with a railway in Angle- sey. Mr. Wawn They only want moral, and not financial support. i Mr. O. Jones Take a couple of thousand pounds in shares (laughter). The Mayor I do not think that the appoint- ment of representatives will oommit the Trust to any scheme. It is a matter that ought to be considered by representative bodies to see whether there is any advantage likely to ac- crue to the town and to the fund's of the Trust if such a railway were made. Personally, I should not like to say whether it would be an advantage, but I should like to know what other people have to say on the matter. I propose that six members of the Trust be ap- pointed to meet other representatives. Mr. 0. Jones seconded. Mr. G. R. Rees: I move that we do not appoint representatives. We have nothing I whatever to do with a railway on the other side. Mr. J. Issard Davies: I quite agree with what the Mayor has said. They are not ask- | ing for financial help. As far as moral sup- port went, the Trust should help an undertak- i ing of the kind. The original motion was adopted, Mr. G. R. Rees voting against. The Chairman, Vice-Chairman (Mr. J. Issard Davies), Mr. Wyatt, T. Owen, T. 'Morgan Lloyd and O. ijones were appointed to represent the Trust. Mr. T. Owen said that there was no doubt j that a railway from Gaerwen to Talyfoel would benefit Carnarvon. The Dwyran District Coun- ci5 had been moving in that direction for years, and a surveyor had been over the ground. Plans had been prepared, and a good deal of expen- diture incurred. The land would have been got I for nothing. However, some opposition was then raised to the scheme. A number of par- ishioners went about with a petition, saying that the railway would fall on the rates. Car npi-von was looked upon by the Anglesey people as the principal market town, and a railway of the kind would do much good to the town. Mr. Wawn .ave you any idea what the cost would be? 1 Mr. Owen No. The land was then to be had for nothing. Mr. Issard Davies: That would be a very good start. Mr. C. A. Jones said all the details would be laid before the central committee.
