GELLIFAELOG TIPPING SITE.—The Medical Officer has presented a report to the Health Committee upon the proposed tipping site at Gellifaelog. which states that within a distance of 75 yards there are 166 houses, one school and one church. Dr. Duncan said:—" In view of this circumstance 1 am strongly of opinion that the site is unsuitable for tipping, as, no matter what precautions are taken, the health of the inhabitants of these houses is boyncl to bo prejudicially affected. The Catholic School, where over 7CO children spend a large portion of their time, is only 75 yards away. It will be remembered that Dr. Spencer Low condemned the Caeracca Tip on account of it being within a quarter of a mile of dwelling- houses, and I well recollect the nuisance from (lies that was experienced in the old Pant Hospital, which was 300 yards away. In my opinion the only' satisfactory method of doalMffr-with refuse build a destructor, and railing that. a silp for tipping at least half- a-mile from dwelling-houses ought to 10 chosen."
