October 13, 1900. At the October meeting of the Lowestoft Town Council on Tuesday, the question of traders' outside displays was raised on a proposal that the sanitary inspector should take proceedings where goods overhung the footpath. The Deputy-Mayor (Mr. C. Y. Fry, a local trader) said that if steps of this kind were to be taken, the Corporation would soon be involved in litigation. All over the country there had been litigation on the subject owing to traders' associations taking up the question. Mr. Jones denied that there was any intention to harass tradesmen. {{COUNTERPOINT }}
