AMALGAMATION FOR TRIAL
THE proposed amalgamation of the Grimsby and Cieethorpes transport systems, which had been recommended by a sub-committee, was rejected at a special meeting of Cleethorpes Corporation last week. The meeting agreed to amalgamation in principle, but considered that there should be a trial period.
A resolution suggesting that there be a trial period of three years was passel This set out the idea of co-ordination and co-operation under a joint committee and managership. It was agreed to defer until after the trial period the promotion of an Act of Parliament which would legalize the amalgamation.
