CITY ABATTOIR

EXTENSIONS PLANNED

NEW BEEF-HOUSE PROPOSED

With the object of obtaining a first-hand idea of the extension work necessary, members of the City Council's health committee this morning visited the municipal abattoir at Westfield. Decision to approach the Local Government Loans Board for sanction to raise a loan of £75,000 to cover the cost of the proposed extensions was made by the council at its last meeting.

Main item on the list of extensions is the construction of a new beef slaughterhouse. The present slaughterhouse was built in 1923 and is considered to have outlived its economic life. Maintenance charges on the plant are extremely high, it is stated, and interruptions to output frequent.

Other extensions will include the provision of a two-storey dressing room, additional drainage, beef conveyors, sheep pen coverage, a slaughtering shed and killing pen.

Mr. F. N. Ambler, chairman of the health committee, said this morning that plans for the new beef house were almost in readiness for the calling of tenders. Sufficient steel had been purchased to cover the needs estimated by the architects.
