Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Transactions of the Faculty of Actuaries, 1905: No. 23; Notes on Local Loans

Water supply is usually looked on as one of these trading or profitable works, and this would be evidently its right place were water generally sold by quantity and supplied by meter. But as that mode of charge is usually confined to factories, private houses being rated for water according to their rental, water supply' might be classed as in great part a non - trading work, and in many towns the cost of water is the largest item of public expenditure.

A distinction on other lines might be made between works that fall naturally to public authorities, because involving the use of property under the control of these bodies, and works that appear to be within the range of private enterprise. Tramways, water, and gas illustrate the former class of undertakings; the latter class we find in baths, markets, and schools. The former must partake of the features of monopolies, for it is undesirable to allow private applicants to lay tramways along the public roads, or gas and water pipes beneath them. But as regards the other class of works, those, namely, that can be undertaken by private persons or joint-stock companies, it is a moot point how far Parliament should lay the burden of them on public bodies, and also to what extent these bodies should assume that burden, if it is optional for them to do so. There are English Urban Corporations that have gone a long way in that direction, laying themselves out as manufacturers, merchants, and shopkeepers 3 and sometimes the result has been far from satisfactory. The poor success of municipal trading might have been anticipated from the consideration that town councillors, chosen on public grounds, are unlikely to compete on equal terms with private traders.

A third mode of dividing the properties and works that we have to show for our four hundred millions of local debt, is supplied by variations in the probable lifetime of the subjects on which the money has been spent. Debts are incurred for subjects quite indestructible, such as land, or good for hundreds of years, like the main works for the supply of Glasgow with water, or for substantial buildings that may stand for generations. In an intermediate class we may put gas works, electric works - the buildings lasting fifty years or more, but the machinery liable to rapid deterioration, and to the not less obvious risk of supersession by new inventions. And money is borrowed too for such short-lived objects as the macadamising of roads, the pro vision of library books, and the purchase of horses.
