G.W.R's Line: Brynamman Meeting-. a nf n, oi> rtv owners amd others wi S'1 UnnS ■Shoo'.™ Bvynamman to consider the Great Western Railway Bih now before Parliament. Ihe ? sea president. He pointed out that the Great Western scheme possessed advantages ov-r rival schemes as the Company would be able to carry the coal of that district difect to tne dock. Other schemes were objectionable, as the traffic would have to run over more than one railway. Mr. H N. Miers added that It would be to the public interest to promote the Great Western scheme. The Neath a-nd Pon- tardawe scheme had been before, the public for years, but nothing had come of it. The Great Western Bill provided for mineral and passen- ger' traffic. Mr. R. L. Sails, Swadisea, also spoke strongly in support of the Great West- ern scheme. He had had long experience of the requirements for colliery developments. It was obvious that coal could be got quicker to dock over one railway system than over the railways of several companies. Mr. A T Williams (Neath) said the Great Western scheme would not only benefit Swansea, but it would also benefit Neath to a large extent. It would carry passengers to Neath, whence there was a direct line to London. Mr. How- ell Gwmgorse, moved a resolution approving of the scheme, and deputing Mr. Samuel Jen- a colliery proprietor, to give evidence. This' wad seconded and carried.
