Application is being made to the Local Government Board for permission to bor- row the sum of £ 5,750 for the purchase of three electric motor vans.

A suggestion from the Divisional Officer that 500 tons of emer- gency coal be purchased has been ad- opted. This will be stored in readiness for the winter. f Proposed Joint Hospital. The Rural Council have now definitely withdrawn from the proposed scheme for, providing a joint infectious diseases hos- pital to serve the borough, the rural dis- trict and Burry Port.
