Letter: In good time for 2000

Click to follow
From Mr L.P. M. Lennox Sir: Tucked away in the Public Health Acts Amendment Act 1890 is a power that enables a parish council and a district council to pay for or contribute to the cost of repairing, maintaining, winding up and lighting a clock in a public place or property or a building which does not belong to the local authority.

Perhaps here is the facility to achieve Mr Good's commendable objective (letter 5 January) that all clocks in public places be in good working order and operating by the year 2000. Many local authorities contribute already towards the cost of clocks on our churches.

Yours faithfully, L. P. M. LENNOX Nether Poppleton, Yorkshire 6 January
