The Incorporation Committee assembled on Wednesday evening, R. Skilbeck, Esq., presiding. Several matters of secondary importance were brought forward, and Mr. Batley, solicitor to the Committee, was instructed to consult counsel on points relating to arrangements which would require to be made at the preliminary meetings of the Council. A resolution was also passed asking the Improvement Commissioners to request Col. Cobbe, chief constable of the West Riding, to allow the police force arrangements to remain in operation as at present, in the enlarged boundary, at the expense of the Corporation, until such time as the Council were in a position to augment the present borough police force.
