TRANSPORT BODY RIDICULED [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus — 29 March 1950

TRANSPORT BODY RIDICULED. Declaring that the bill was one of the most extraordinary ever put before the House, the N.S.W. Opposition Leader, Mr. Vernon Treatt, told the Legislative As sembly that the Government's proposal to create a Transport and Highways Commission was doomed to failure because it ig nored the basic causes of the transport muddle. The bill provides for the ap pointment of a commission of eight members to co-ordinate the whole of the State's transport services. It brings the Railways Commissioner under Ministerial control. In a vigorous attack on the plan, Mr. Treatt, who is the Libe ral leader, said the railways were losing money heavily because they were continually being cur <tailed through lack of coal and so lost valuable freight, and be cause they did not have enough trucks and engines to cope with the' freight offering.

SOURED SOIL KILLING TREES, RESIDENT CLAIMS The foul-smelling green scum which settled on stagnant soak age and drainage from adjacent properties, soured the soil, and caused, destruction of trees and vegetables, a resident of Camp bell Street, Northmead, claimed last week. Inspection of the property at the resident's request had con firmed the complaint, the Health and Building Inspector (Mr. F. E. Stoney) told Baulkham Hills Council last week. Mr. Stoney said the remedy appeared to 'be the provision of subsoil drainage on the site. "The owner of the block from which this soakage emanates is prepared to undertake this work," he added.
