Westminster's Experience.

In a report recommending the purchase of four more Leyland petrol motor wagons, the Westminster Highways Committee point to the fact that the City Council now has 82 horses and 20 motor wagons. On the question of purchasing new horses or additional motors, the Committee has no hesitation in recommending the latter. The City Comptroller finds that on the basis of tonnage, and without reference to mileage, one motor did the work of 4.12 horses ; that the cost per ton for motor work was 2s. 9.28d., against 3s. 10.12d. per ton for horse work ; and that 4.12 horses cost 213 4s. 2d. weekly and one motor 29 us. 6d. weekly, a, difference in favour of the motor of 23 12s. Bd. per week.
