EXTENSION OF THE CHESTER BOUNDARIES. ♦ OPPOSITION FROM FLINTSHIRE. On Wednesday at the Flintshire County Council meeting, the clerk (Mr. T. T. Kelly) reported that he had received notice of an intended application by the Town Council of Chester to the Local Government Board for an order for the extension of their boundary by which it was proposed to include portions of the townships of Saltaey and Sealand, situated in the county of Flint. Dr. EDWARDS moved that steps be taken to oppose the application, urging that Flintshire bad small enough ratable value already, and could not afford to lose any of it. Mr. JOHN BELLIS seconded. Alderman WILLIAM DAviEs was very sorry they had had anything1 to do with the Chester people with regard to the pollu- tion of the Dee. Shropshire, Denbighshire, and Merionethshire were all opposing the appointment of a joint committee to deal with the matter. As to the proposal to take in a slice from the top of Saltney, he thought the subject was an important one, inasmuch as before long there would be docks on the Dee at the very point involved in the Chester Corpora- tion proposals. Therefore he thought they should keep their weather-eye open, as it would form a very considerable rating area if such a thing should take place. The CHAIRMAN It is a very important ques- tion for us, and we ought to be very watchful, for these Chester people are shrewd and sharp. The resolution was carried unanimously.
