Residents of the Boroiigh who had their milk supply cut off to-day, and, particularly those with young children, will appreciate the efforts of Mr F. Z. D. Ferriman in inducing Mr F. Amos __„. to continue to supply the Borough,-" daily. . Mr Ferriman, in company with.' a, " Guardian " representative, conferred with Mr Amos this afternoon, 'and at Mr Ferriman's request Mr Amos agreed to sell the milk from his cart at the Water Tower between .7.30 and 8-a.m.. and at* the Technical Sohpol between 8.15 and 9 .a.m. . This arrangement, provided the number of customers are forthcoming, will be., continued until such time as the vendor cg.n make arrangements for a central depot. The supply of milk will be plentiful, but will be conducted on a strictly oash basis. Without the cash there will be no milk

Mr Amos explained .to ;the reporter that in the oast he had to contend with ,a surprisingly large number of bad debts. The people who were responsible for the latter sometimes paid a small amount on account, while others never attempted to pay- and so the unsatisfactory position continued. Tie had also found a difficulty in getting over the labour problem, whioli induced him to "ive up the round. __, The Town Cleric stated that if the council had decided, to coihtrbl a municipal depot, apart .from ,the apparent difficulty in obtaining a supply, it would have been necessary to obtain a special permit, and this would have meant'considerable delay before the depot could be opened.
