9. INSPECTOR RABBETTS’ REPORT.

—Inspector Rabbets reported that since the last meeting, he had paid 250 visits to premises of which, 27 were primary inspections. Four visits had been made to slaughterhouses, three to dairies and cow-sheds, and four to piggeries.

Nuisances had been abated at 1 to 4, Rosemary Cottages ; ” Nursery Cottage,” and No. 6, Nursery Road ; 17, Fountain Road ; Blume’s Factory ; 6 and 7, Manor Villas ; 3, 4, and 7, Upper Green ; and 1 to 8, Bridge Road.

The drains of 14 houses had been primarily tested, and 12 tests had been applied to drains in course of re-construction. Two patients had been removed to hospital, and two houses had been disinfected.

The nuisance arising from all accumulation of filth and stagnant water at Orchard Pit, Westfields, was being abated, and the wooden pigsty would become disused as soon as the concrete one, now being constructed, was completed.
