At a recent meeting of the London County Council Mr Reynolds inquired whether attention had been paid to tho building operations of German firms of recent years to ascertain if foundations of undue faith had been put do?vn. An official reply was made that the Building Act Committee had made an investigation, and a few such “ incidents ” in strategic situations had been referred to the military authorities. Some time ago official intimation was received by the War Office authorities that Private Charles Heath, of tho Royal Scots Regiment, was killed in action on August 26, and his parents were advised accordingly. The family went into mourning, and a memorial service was held in the local church. Now the family have received a post card from Private Heath stating that he is a prisoner in Germany, and asking for ai parcel of “ fags ” to bo sent to him there. The appeal of the Hawke’s Bay division of the British Medical Association for motor ambulances has met with a liberal response, the total now being well over £I,OOO. A cable was sent during the week ordering the first ambulance (given by Mrs T. H. Lowry), and another will be at once ordered. It is hoped within the next few days to raise enough money for a third. A Gazette Extraordinary issued last night extends for a further period the regulations made on November 10 providing for full secrecy to be maintained regarding the movements of transports and all connected therewith.
