Date1 December 1921
DescriptionRefers to Mr. J. S. Green's application for a grant of £60. Explains that, in view of the divergent reports on the application, Council do not feel able to make the grant applied for. Provides a summary of each of these reports, noting that Council were particularly influenced by the second and were reluctant to make a grant which might result in unsatisfactory treatment of an important problem.
