On the schedule of works approved of provision is made out of the loan money to spend £1,500 on the foreshore conditionally on the Government granting £1 for El£1 as sistance. This was recently refused by the Minister of Public Works when waited on ky the Mayor. However, councillors are going in a body next week to repeat the application, and we V hope they will be successful.
