 ??? ??? BE?T ?M?HM PROJECT. 1 COLD STORAGE SCHEME. APPROVED BY HARBOURI TRUST. I At a meeting of Swansea Harbour Execu- tive on Thursday, Sir Griffith Thomas (chair- man) presiding, it was decided to approve of the big oold storage scheme which has j been exclusively foreshadowed in the "Daily Post." A London cold stores company had made certain proposals to the Trustees whereby they shouldered a portion of the financial responsibilities. The combined total ex- panditure will run into $1,50,CW, of which it is understood the Trustees will risk £ 30,000. The accommodation to be provided in the I new stores is half a million cubic feet. 1 FAR-REACHING EFFECTS. I Not only will Swansea by this provision become a distributing depot for the South- West and Midlands, but by fresh lines com- ing he-which are practically guaranteed —considerable impetus will be given to our coal and general export trade. Not. only will frozen and chilled meat be stored at Swansea, but fruit, eggs, etc. All the plans and specifications for the new stores have been prepared, and all that is required now is to advertise for tenders. Local foreign meat firms and others greatly favour the enterprise.. One big company- Armour'¡;¡--hM three distributing centres in the country—London, Liverpool, and South- ampton. Often they have 4,000 quarters of beef alone arriving with other cargo. Swan- sea stands A BIG CHANCE of securing the distributing trade for these I firms within, say, a two hundred nines radius. As one wholesale manager put it to a. "Daily Post" reporter on Thursday after- noon, "it all depends upon the rates. If we can discharge and store cheaper at Swan- sea the port will get the trade." In big cold stores the trade is of an in and jout character all the time. Little remains there for any length of time, and conse- quently tho constant turnover is a great asset. Tenders will be invited shortly.
