20/09/1935 – Bellshill Speaker – Removal recommended. Mr McCracken said that instead of trying to beautify the bings which were not only blots on landscape but a source of annoyance to large numbers of people in that districtt, they should write to the Commissioner recommending their rentoval. At Bothwell Park there were two huge bings and within three hundred yards there was ahuge excavation from which clay had been taken for brick making and which was full of water and a danger to the whole district. Why, he asked, should not some of the unemployed be engaged to fill up that hole from those bings? There were, he added, in connection with this question, various schemes that could put into operation.
