Mr Marlow, in moving the adoption of the Works Committee's report, said that good progress was being made with the work on the foreshore. The work was of a. sulwtantial nature, and full advantage was being taken of the fins weather to push the job along. In the Kaikorai the lino of pipes in section No. 2 was now being laid, and the work there was being completed under the estimate. Section No. J, Kaikorai. had been completed also in a satisfactory manner, and at a sum considerably below the- estimate.

The tenders of Mr A. Burk, of £l4 18s. for a draiii-in-comnion in Douglas street and Prince Albert road, and of £43 10s for a. drain-in-common in Dudley place and Braoview crescent, were accepted.
