Phillip Island Severance To the Editor [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 20 May 1921

Phillip Island Severance To the Editor. Sir.--The letter and the personal enquiry of Mr Dungey re the dispo sal of Phillip Island is certainly news to the people of that island Some time ago the Cowes Progress Association had the matter re sever ance from the Woolamai Shire under consideration, but after investigat ing the matter and finding that the entire rates would just pay the sec retary and health officer, the matter was allowed to drop. In any case, it would be foolish to drop a fine shire such as Woolamai in order to attach ourselves to a sand dune like French Island. Furthermore, it is not the business' of the Country Roads Board to interfere with whom they have a temporary-and to the said shires often an expensive-con nection. I am sure French Island is very fortunate to have secured a promise of'£5000 from the Country Roads Coard, but what is it for ? If for roads to lead nowhere and reach nobody, I think it would be wiser to buy out the French Island settlers it certainl...
