Deficit on Gasworks.—At the Finance Com- mittee of the Aberavon Town Council on Tuesday, the borough accountant (Mr. F. E. Baker) reported tliat the increase in the gas- works overdraft was £611. There was an in- crease in the borough fund overdraft of £106. There was a reduction in the waterworks overdraft of £69, and an increase in the credit balances on capital accounts practic- ally covered the present overdraft of current accounts. Alderman Aaron James asked why it was that there was a debit of £ 611 on the gasworks. They were led to believe that. with tho new works, there would be extra, profit to meet their expenditure. The- Ac- oountant said that he hooed by the end of March that the £611 would be wiped out.
