ed, took exception to certain paragraphs

He was of opinion that the Auditor was
in no position to state that the "collection
of licences continued to be ineffective"
and that "no action has been taken to in.
vestigate unpaid licences, and to enforce
payment It was his view that the most
that the Auditor should do was to point
out the extent of arrears and request
early collection.
The further statement that the Coun-
cil's indebtedness to Government is ex-
tremely high" was considered by Mr.
