'THERE were sidelights on the 1 shortage of motor vehicles and spares at a recent meeting of Oldham Cleansing and Carrying Committee. It was stated that owing to the difficulty of procuring replacements for motor vehicles it might be necessary to purchase additional horses for the refuse

collection services. It costs 27s. a week to keep °a horse, From a firm of motor traders and engineers a letter was received explaining why .it was impossible to state when three new refuse collectors ordered by the committee could be supplied. They promised to do everything they could to maintain existing vehicles in the best running order.
