CO-OPERATIVE CONGRESS. Forthcoming Visit to Newport. Extensive preparations are being made at Newport for the reception of the 1,700 dele- gates who will visit the town during Whit- week for the fortieth annual congress of th& co-operative societies of Great Britain and Ireland. The last occasion when the congress assembled in South Wales was in 1900 at Cardiff. Since then the co-operative move- ment has grown phenomenally. Some 1,500 delegates visited Cardiff, and this number will be increased at Newport by 150 or 20Q. Besides the British delegates, representatives will be present from France, Germany, Hol- land, Belgium, Denmark, and Norway. The proceedings will be opened with a meet- ing of the Central Board on Saturday, June 6th, and the opening of the Co-operative Pro- ductions Exhibition by Councillor Tbos. Parry, J.P., Mayor cf Newport, at the special exhi- bition building which has been erected at Rodney Parade. The first sitting of the congress will be on Whit-Monday, when the Mayor of Newport will formally welcome the delegates at the-, Central Hall, after which Councillor T. W. Allen, Blaina, who is the president, will de- liver his inaugural address. An international session of the congress will be held on the fol- lowing Monday evening. On Tuesday there will be a meeting of the Central Board and an educational session at the Congress Hall. One of th$papers to be read is on The Small Holdings Act and its Relation to Co-operative Societies" Further papers will be given On Wednesday, and a meeting of the Amal- gamated Union of Co-operative Employees will also be held.
