CHEPSTOW. I Agent.—Mr Clart CHEPSTOW CASTLE.—At the meeting of the Chepstow District Council on Monday evening, Mr. Phillips referred to the newspaper statements that the Government were considering the advisability of purchasing Tintern Abbey and Raglan Castle, and he suggested that Colonel the Hon. F. C, Morgan, the local member of Parlia- ment, should be asked to use his influence to induce the Government to purchase Chepstow Castle, which was of more historic interest than Raglan. The suggestion met with general assent. The Clerk suggested that a deputation of the Council should wait upon the Commissioner of Woods and Forests and urge the matter upon him, and that the town gate and town wall should be included in their request. It was ultimately resolved to communicate with Colonel Morgan, and that if it were his wish a deputation of the Council should wait upon the Com- missioner.
