(Merthyr), the guest of the evening, in responding, alluded to the inauguration and establishment of the Neath Chamber, which had developed re- markably during the last five years. Pass- ing, lie Mud the Federated Chambers had dome much, but he thought their efforts should extend much farther, until there were 360 in the Federation instead of 36. The Trading Community was a very important community, but it had allowed itself to take what might be termed a "back seat." There was much that a Chamber of Trade could do in the public interest. Chambers of Trade provided the means whereby grievances could be taken from the village or township right to the floor of the Ecus- of Commons. (Applause.)
