LLANDEBIE WATER COMMITTEE. Mr. W. Williams read the report of the above Committee, which had received com- plaints. regarding shortage of water m some parts. At Penygroes and Gorslas there was a great shortage. Mr. Jones, the Sanitary Inspector, referred to the continual complaints which were being received regarding Penygroes and Gorslas. It had been decided that extra pipes should be laid, but during the war the matter had been left in abeyance. The time had arrived for them to proceed with the scheme.
