Llandiio Rural District I Council. The monthly meeting of the above Council was held on Saturday last, Mr. Gomer I Harries, J.P., Vice-chairman, presiding. ROADS COMMITTEE. I The report of the Roads Committee was submitted by Mr. John Bevan, which shewed that the Clerk had been authorised to write to the manager of the Llandebie Lime Firms Co. informing him that, unless the Council is better supplied with road metalling, the matter wi!' be taken to a higher authority. Mr. Bevan also remarked that the Council's in- structions regarding the splashing and pruning o! hedges had not been observed in the Llan- sawel district, from where complaints were continually received. He thought the farmers should complete the work without delay. SANITARY COMMITTEE. I Mr. W. Williams read the report of the above Committee, and it was stated that the Sanitary Inspector (Mr. E. Jones) had re- ported that the Brechfa Bridge required atten- tion. It was recommended that the Surveyors of the two District Councils concerned should meet. Mr. Williams said that no reply had I been received from Mr. Drummond with reference to the communication of the Clerk respecting allotments at Quarter-bach. The Chairman said that it was of great importance that they should do something at Quarter-bach immediately, as the place there was overcrowded. Something should be done to devise ways and means so that the people might be able to build cottages there. Mr. W. Williams said it was necessary that the scheme should be proceeded with, such as fixing sites, clearing the land, and preparing the plans. Such preliminaries should be proceeded with without delay. It was suggested that the Sanitary Committee should meet that day month to deal with the matter. Mr. D. Glyn Jenkins said that they would be practically helpless if they intended pro- ceeding under the old system which had been in vogue for years. He thought it would be better to leave the matter alone ulltil they saw what the system of the new Government would bring into operation. ALLOTMENTS AT BRYNAMMAN. I The Clerk, in dealing with the allotments question at Brynamman, said that the Council were confronted with two courses of action. They could either obtain an enclosure award to take in the wide piece of land along the road, and manage it themselves; and the other way was to proceed with the acquiring of the place in the ordinary way. He could not be certain which would be the better course. The award would cost more, but still, under it, the Council would get better power. They would have to pay for the land, of course. Mr. D. Glyn Jenkins: To whom? The Clerk: You cannot take it from some- body else without payment. Mr. W. Williams: It. seems funny that we should have to pay for what other people are getting for nothingâeven without the asking. Mr. L. N. Powell said that it was common land, and the Lord of the Manor did not pay anything for it. Still, if they took forcible possession, they would land themselves in law suits which would prove very costly. The Clerk observed that no difficulty would arise with regard to the price of the land. Mr. Drummond was very reasonably disposed in the matter. Mr. D. Glyn Jenkins said that to compen- sate farmers for their rights in the land was quite a different thing to paying for the land itself. It was ultimately decided to seek the advice ot the Rural District Councils' Association as to which course was the better to take, and the Surveyor was instructed to prepare a large scale plan of the land to be acquired between Brynamman and Cwmllynfeli and the moun- tain road.
