EX-CR. STRAHAN. [Newspaper Article] — Richmond Australian — 22 August 1914
EX-CR. STRAHAN. . Ex-Cr. . Strahan, the Labor South Ward candidate, then addressed the meeting. He explained that it was at his request that Senator Blakey spoke first, for they would have other op portunities during-the next few days of hearing him (ex-Cr. Strahan). As it was after ten o'clock, ex-Cr. Strahan was necessarily brief. He expressed his entire approval of the principles 'expounded by the Mayor, and said that private enterprise could never satisfactorily control public utilities for the' benefit of the people, as the ? element of profit to the individuals rather,, than benefit the people was the main consideration. Private en terprise rendered necessary Weights 'and Measures Acts, Pure Food Bills, and other legislation. to protect the public from unscrupulous traders. Municipalisation of such utilities as food, lighting, etc.; would give the people a purer and cheaper service all round. If returned to the Council, it would be his earnest eudeayour to .as sist in bringing...
