SWANSEA COUNCIL I Teachers and the Fisher Grant. Th." Swansea Council mwtinj:- was held on Wednesday, the Mayor (Aid. Hen J OllS) presidll; It was noticed that the minutes d the Estates Committee were moved by the Mayor, and not, as by the ehiur- i man <f that committee (Aid. Tutton). Tho following mmute was referred to: "The estate agpnl replied that owing to the fire which had recently taken place at these premises, it would be necessary they should be rebuilt, and that the Corporation Ix* approached by Messrs. Edward England and Son, Ltd., and Mr. IT. Macdoncll, the occupier* of adjacent premises, with a view ot widen- iiig the present approach to tho r p: miscs." Mr. Macdonell and Mr. Steve Morgan attended before the committee to supr01^ the necessity for widenmif. j Resolved that subject to Mr. Frank Tay- lor agreeing to rebuild that jwri'un of the Lion Stores, now let to him on a yearly tenancy of £30 per annum, in such a way as to set back the now buihlin-' to the pink line shown on t.h<' !ine produce the premises to be let to him for a term of 16 years from the 25th March, 19bS. ai- the yearly rent of £ 25." Aid. Tutton said he found it impossible to continue the chairmanehvu. and he re- signed. He had sent his resignation to the Mayor a week a^o. j The Mayor: That is not a inatterefor the Council. Mr. D. Williams: I wonder whether you as Mayor have power to accept the resignation without it going before the Committee. The Mayor: That is just what I said. Aid. Tutton. If this minute had not boen here I would have allowed the matter to stand over until the next meet- ing of the Committee. But as it I,, 1 might have been taken as an assenting pc.rty, and therefore I sent in my resigna- tion. The minutes were adopted. Arising out cf the Market Committee's recommendation⢠that the salary of the markets manager be increase d by 150 per annum from April 1st, and that the Com- mittee again eeti the matter in a months' time. Aid. CülsÃ1 asked what were the ex- ceptional circumstances for bringing for- ward this proposal at present. Last year the income from the Markets was well over £ 2,000; yrt the increase was pro- posed at a time when that incomc, it v.as estimated, would drop to CS32. Aid. Colwill moved as an amendment i ihat the minute be referred back for further consideration. Since his appoint- ment the market manager had received substantial advances. In view of the continuous pleas for economy by the members of the Corporation he did not understand this new recommendation for a further increase. The Council should bear in mind the fact that they had .a 'falling revenue. This matter should be; lint, in aijeyance. and later on p:>rhai>& -the increase could be granted. The Coun- i cil should put sentiment one side when fart. stared them in the face as in this instance. I A'd. Devonald seconded. Mr. Win. Owen said it would be a very bad principle if they were not goir;g to recognise certain officials if the.v hap- pened to be runAing losing concerns for which they were not responsible. The amendment was defeated, only three members voting for it. Mr. Ivor Gwyrne, moving the minutes of the Education Committed pointed out that for the first time the Training Col- lege came on the rates to some extent. The increased expenditure was solely due to the cause that affected everv other Committee. They h?d now RB intima- tion that an additional grant of about < £ 1,530 for the Training College would be given next rear, "'0 that they hoped the College would not again come on the rates. (Hear. hear(. Ald. Dan Jones again raised the ques- tion of the holding of Board of Trade ex- aminations for marine eJimneers in Swan- sea. and Mr. Ivor Gwynne explained that steps had been taken to get the Board of Trade to grant the privilege, and they were considering it. Arising out of the report of the Educa- tion Committee. Mr. Dd. W'miam-s a?ain referred to the ppphcations of the l teachers for increasM of salaries. Thce? applications had not been acceded to by the Committee, and Mr. Williams moved that the minute be refsred back, and that the opportunity be afforded to the secre- tary of the teachers' organisation, and representative- of the local teachers, to place their views before the Committee. Mr. Dd. Matthews said a great amount of time had already been spent on this question, and he assured Mr. Williams that the Committee had given it their most careful consideration. Mr. Iolyneux I',nil that pracdcaJly the whole of the Fisher grant had been expended on the teachers. The amendment was defeated, only 11 members (the Labour representatives) voting for it. Mr. David Williams: The next move is with the teachers, I am afraid. Mr. Powlesiand: I hope the teachers will down tools.
