WIRRAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. I ■ 1 Mr. T. Davies presided over a meeting of this Council held on Vlonday at Birkenhead. LITTLE SUTTON DRAINAGE CHARGE. In reference to a complaint a3 to the levying of a special charge upon Littlo Sutton for a township c€ we rage scheme, a letter waa received from the Local Government Board, pointing out that it was for the Districc Council to decide in the first instance to what account the sum should be charged. It was open, however, to any ratepayer or property owner in the district at the audit of the accounts of the Council to object to die manner in which the payment had been charged, and if aggrieved at the auditor's decision, to appeal to the Board. The Board could not undertake to exprcee an opinion at the present time. The Chairman said he failed to see why the cost of the scheme should be made a general charge, as the Parish Council employed labour against the District Council wish and without their knowledge. No action was taken SEWERAGE OF HESWALL. A letter was read from Mr. G. Talbot, of Heswall, renewing hid complaints aa to the defective character of the sewerage at the north side of Heswall, and of the "inertia of the parish council" in dealing with the matter. He urged the District Council to exercioc independently the powers they posrvetscd. The Clerk (Mr. J. E. S. Ollive) said the Parish Council did not approve of the scheme pre- pared by the engineer (Mr. Priest), and were going to carry out a scheme of their own. He had received a letter from the Local Government Board, intimating that no more crude sewage must be discharged imo the river. The whole of the sewage of Heswall would have to be treated. Mr. Tapocott said the Parish Council did not consider the echeme of Mr. Priest was necee- sary at the prevent, time. Mr. Wailirf (inspector) said the private drains ought to be relaid. Mr. Tapscott: Wo think a scheme costing £ 6,CC0 or £ 7,000 is far too expensive. The Chairman thought it would be a farce if their engineer prepared a small scheme in view of the fact that the locality was growing. Mr. Tapscott said the idea was to adopt a portion of the scheme, so that they could extend it at any time to meet future requirements. The Chairman said this way what Mr. Priest suggested. Mr. Lyall said they felt very strongly about the scheme, becauoo it would largely affect land that was at present unbuiit upon, and would serve a few very isolated housed. He did not think there wavs a single case where the sewage question was urgent, and the District Council ought not to be made a lever for forcing Heswall to expense. The Medical Officer (Dr. G. A. Kenyon) said the sewerage of Quarry Bank was urgent. Further consideration of the subject was post- poned pending communication from the Parish. Council, and the letter from the Local Govern- ment Board as to the necessity of purifying the effluent was also referred to the Parish Council for their observations. CONTRACT. Several tendere, were received for the sewering of Red Lion-lane, Little Sutton. The lowest tender, that of Messrs. Cartwright Bros., for JB54, was accepted. HIGHWAYS COMMITTEE. At a meeting of this committee, under the presidency of Mr. T. Daviem, a vote of sympathy was passed with the surveyor (Mr. Davies) in his recent accident, which resulted in a broken thigh.—The surveyor's accounts shewed total receipts amounting to E291, and payments of £ 169, leaving a balance in hand of 21,221. The treasurer's aecounta shewed a balance in hand of about B720.
