Conflicting Interests

Extract from Gloucester v. Ebbw Vale match programme, 7 Dec 1983


‘This simply can’t go on. Either the Gloucester City Council is going to have to stop holding its full Council Meetings on Wednesdays, or Gloucester RFC are going to have to shift their evening game night.

There are at least six of us, counting Members and Officers, who aren’t here tonight, because we’re deliberating in the Council Chamber. Which, knowing the characters concerned, has a highly disadvantageous effect on the beer sales.

There ought to be a by-law.

Peter Arnold
