ASHBOURNE RURAL DISTRICT COUNCILThe chairman said they were very sorry to hear of the death of Mr. Peter Bourne, who until a short time ago was the representative on the council for the parish of Shirley, and they welcomed Mr. J. W. Brown, who, he hoped, would prove a useful member as his predecessor had done.
Mr. Brown said it would be his endeavour to do his duty in the important position to which he had been appointed.
LABOURER'S WAGESThe usual return relating to the wages of agricultural labourers was asked for, and it was agreed that the clerk should be instructed to report to the Board of Trade that the average wages for the district were from 30s. to 32s. per week, as compared with 25s. to 27s. per week last year.
