Sheffield Independent – Tuesday 11 July 1899
The monthly meeting of this authority was held last night, Mr. Charles Holmes presiding.
An account was presented from the County Council for £12. 17s. 7d., the expenses incurred in the Conisbro’ inquiry, in June, 1898.
Mr. Robinson considered the Doncaster Rural District Council ought to pay the amount.
Mr. Brocklesby pointed out that the account was perfectly in order if they referred to the Act of 1888, which stated that expenses incurred by the County Council in holding inquiries should be paid by the parish.
After some further discussion it was decided to pay the account.
