SWANSEA'S ASYLUM QUESTION, DEPUTATION CONFERS WITH MERTHYR AUTHORITIES- SUGGESTED JOLNT SCHEME FA v 0 UKABLY RECEIV ED. The Swansea deputation, consisting of the Mayor (Aid. Lee), .Uessrs. J. Livingston, .Lt. G. Solomon, and the Deputy Town Clerk, that waited on the Merthyr authorities, were received by the Deputy Mayor (Mr. James) and six W members of the Merthyr Parliamentary Committee, and the gug. gasted joint asylum for the two boroughs was favourably received. Ip tho pre.. sent Merthyi have not received any iritima. lion from the Bridgend Visiting Committee as to theii immediate intentions, though the Lunacy Commissioners have enquired as to the arrangements being made fOr the provision oi their pauper lunatics, who will eventually have to leave the oounty insti- tution. In these circumstances the conference was adjourned, though, as stated, the .suggeste(j partnership with Swansea was favourably | entdrtaiaed, it being realised that for Mer- tbyr to erect separate buildings for 187 patients would 'mean an enormous fjpcn.se. whilst by joining Swansea, who have 505! oases now at Bridgend, the co^t per head to both authorities might be ntateriajjy re_ duced. Then, as to situation, ^1, actually in Swansea would be more con- venient to the Merthyr authorities than their present arrangement. The train di.s. tance to Swansea is less than to Bridgend, and no change is necessary a„s is the case with the latter place trom Mert/hyr. Swansea has to vacate Bridgend bv April 1st, 1909. At the present t.imp, „.s JU1Ja.t1Cs are maintained by th() county authorities at a cost of 12.s. 9d. per head, or just 3s. Ud. more than it costs the county to maintain its own lunatics- w hen Il1 parnership with the county the cost to Swansea WM 98. Id. per head, and the 121'. 9rl. was fixed by the Court of Arbitration. It. is practir,-i|]v C"Cl tain tha.t erect an asylum of its own by Apnl, 1909. so that fresh ar rangeanents will then have to be made, and it is thought the county authorities will then charge from 14s. or 15s. par 00a.d. Newport, at the present time, is in fact receiving patients at its new asylum at a cost of lis. per head. The whole question is a highly important one, and the visit of Mr. Hine, the expert I employed by the Swansea Corporation, to j Report as to sites, •tc., is b«ing looked for- j waved fax
