LONDON WELSH CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATION. Colonel the Hon. C. E. Edwards presided at the monthly meeting of the London Welsh Conservative and Unionist Association on Monday. The subject of discussion was Trades Unions," upon which a paper was read by Mr. W. F. Pennant. In the course of his remarks Mr. Pennant said that it had been urged that workmen should settle their disputes by direct negotiation with the masters. It was forgotten, however, that that was not always possible, as the employers so often took the form of limited liability companies. If the State allowed a com- bination of capitalists it should also permit a combination of the workmen, but these Trades Unions must take their place under the law. It was not fair that they should be beyond the reach of the law. In the course of a discussion that followed, several speakers advocated compulsory audit or examination of Trades Union accounts for the purpose of preventing fraud.
