£ 605 AN ACRE. 1 COUNTY EDUCATION EXTRAVAGANCE. NANTWICH GUARDIANS' PROTEST. At the Nantwich Board of Guardians, on Saturday, the Finance Committee recom- mended payment to the County Council of £ 1,627 11?. 5d. The recommendation was carried by four to three, and when the minutes came up for confirmation Mr. Wm. Emberton, a rural guardian, proposed that action be deferred until the next meeting. He said that the County Education Committee pro- posed to build at Crewe a training college, and had acquired as a site. land for which they had paid £G03 per aero. This was an alto- gether unreasonable price. It was pointed out at the meeting of the Education Committee that land could have been bought within a short dis- tance from Crewe in a much better situation, away from smoky surroundings, at B150 an acre, and yet the committee chose to pay £ 005. He moved the resolution as a protest against the extravagant price which had been paid. The Rev. W. Bidlake, Crowe, seconded. Mr. T. Smith (Crewe) said that although the price appeared large. it worked out at 2s. 8d. per square yard. He reminded the guardians that the site was chosen because of its close proximity to Crewe Station, which made it a convenient site for the purpose for which it was required. The amendment deferring payment was carried by 16 votes to 5.
