At the Nantwich Board of Guardians' meet- ing on Saturday it was intimated that the Main Roads Committee had had under consideration the condition of the main roack, owing to the effect or t.he motor car traffic, and that to pro- vide fc r the extra co.-o¡t of maintenance the county rate would have to be increased by a halfpenny or three farthings in the pound. Mr. S. Jackson said he did not think that motorists were entirely to b'.a.rne for the con- (Iitiot, of the roade. The marerial of which roads were made was not at; good and did not lant as long arl when the metal was broken by hand. Mr. R. W. C'artwrigilt Iiioaid he di.sliked motor cars on the high roads bscauwe of the dust set up, and the opinion that motorists theuuselvcis ought to provide and maintain special tracks from great centres. Eventually the lioard parked a re«du! ion (proposed by Mr. W. Emberton) expressing the opinion thar in view of the larger revenue anticipated from increasing the licences of motorists there should be some larger alloetftion of fund* from the Imperial Exchequer to local authorities responsible for tho upkeep of roads.
