MOUNTAIN ASH DISTRICT COUNCIL. Held on Tuesday afternoon. Present: Chairman, Mr. Bruce Jones, J.P., Messrs. W. T. Bowen, W. Davies, W. Lamburn, G. H. Hall Charles Maddox, David Rogers, Griffith Evans, J.P., T. W. Jones, D. J. Lewis, W. Millar, Thomas Jones, J.P., and the Rev. George Neighbour, together with Mr A. Pincombe (clerk), Mr. W. G. Thomas (surveyor), Mr Fred Stock (accountant), Mr. H. T. Jones (sanitary inspector) and Dr. Arthur Jones (medical officer of health).
National Amalgamated Workers' Union. A letter had been sent to the "Mayor and Members" (meaning, of course, the chairman and members of the Council) by the National Amalgamated Workers' Union, ap- plying for a 44-hours week of six days, at the same wages as the Council were now paying workmen in their employ. It wa§ decided to get into com- munication with the Clerk of the Conciliation Board with the view of obtaining the exact hours of the award which had been issued by the Board. Mr. Lamburn availed himself of the consideration of the matter at issue to ask to be released of his position as a member of the Wages Board. He said that the insinu- ation had been made in certain quarters that Labour should not be represented on the Wages Board; and he felt that, as a consequence it would be far better all round if his resignation were accepted. The Chairman paid a tribute to the work which Mr. Lamburn had done on the Board with the pros, and cons, of which he was quite familiar; and it would be 3. decided loss to the Council if he were to sever his connection. He hoped that Mr. Lamburn* would consent to remain in office for another 12 months, at any rate. Mr. Rogers coincided with the Chairman's views, and added that the Council would suffer if Mr. Lam- burn gave up his position. Mr. Millar, as a colleague on the Wages Board, identified himself warmly with the appeal to Mr. Lamburn to continue in office. Mr. Lamburn reiterated his re- marks as to the objection to Labour representation on the Board, and, therefore, he expressed the hope that the Council might accede to his wishes. The Chairman: I am surprised to hear that there should be any such objection. Personally, I hold the view that, if there be a Board on which Labour should have a voice, it is certainly the Wages Board under notice. Mr. Hall pointed out that the ob- jection did not apply to the local representatives of Labour on the Bonrd, but that it applied in gen- eral. Like the previous speakers, however, he considered that Mr. Lambtirm should c*ntip«e t* git on the Board as one of the Council 1 representatives. c Eventually, on the proposition 0 Mr Neighbour, who was seconded "J Mr Rogers, Mr Lamburn agreed W retain his position for another sl- months.
I ncorporation. It was decided to discuss the, question of Incorporation under the Municipal Corporations Act, 188A at the close of the present meeting in committee.
To Run a Lorry. Mr. D. R. Jones, proprietor the Pentwyn Colliery, wrote for permission .to use a small steam lorry with a capacity of 9 tons, for: the conveyance of coal between the pit and the T.V.R. Station at PeD- rhiweeiber. It was resolved to defer consider- ation of the letter pending a report from the Surveyor as to the effect which the running of the lorry would have on the road.
t Parliamentary Road Transport Committee. This committee had submitted, for the consideration of the Coun- cil, the following questions:- (1) Do the Council in principle approve or disapprove of the pro- posal to place the control of ajj means of transport—railways and canals, light railways and National Electricity Undertakings as well a&- roads-in one Department under one Minister? (2) Would they prefer to see the Road Board reconstructed as an in- dependent authority under the chairmanship of a Cabinet Minister directly responsible to Parliament and its membership increased to in- clude representatives of Association of Local Authorities? Mr. Thomas Jones said he ap- proved of paragraph one, but was opposed to paragraph two. He thought it would be tantamount to an insult if one Minister were to be placed in charge of the different works in question. The Chairman: I agree with Mr. Jones entirely. If such an enor- mous job were entrusted to one department, a hash would be made of it. Mr. Rogers was of the same view and favoured the establishment of two departments. On the other hand, however, Mr Hall and Mr Lamburn were in com- plete disagreement with the previous- speakers. Mr. Lamburn went on to* say that the war had, unquestion- ably, provided the experience that the control of the railways, etc., should be vested in different hands from those who superintended them before the war. The Chairman replied that, where- as, formerly, they had heard a great deal in favour of decentralisation, the barometer had now veered round, in the same quarters, for cen- tralisation. He (the chairman) could only repeat that, in his judg- ment, there would be enough work for two departments. Mr. Thomas Jones: It is really a question of choosing the lesser of two evils now. The Chairman: Will you move, then, that the transport v of canals, railways, and kindred works be con- trolled by one department, and that another authority be set up for the- roads, etc. ? Mr. Thomas Jones: I don't ap- prove of paragraph 1, but do ap- prove of paragraph 2. After a free expression of views- among the members, Mr. Hall pro- posed that the Council approve of paragraph 1, but oppose paragraph 2. He was seconded by Mr. Lam- burn. The voting, howover fa- oured the contrary motion of Mr. Thomas Jones.
Destruction of Rats. The Clerk of the County Council had written, asking the Council to participate in a scheme for the de- struction of rats, and-to send repre- sentatives to a conference of public bodies to be held at Pontypridd. Upon the proposition of Mr. Griffith Evans, the Surveyor and Sanitary Inspector were authorised to attend the conference.
Overseers. Councillors Griffith Evans, Chas. Maddox and Geo. Neighbour were re-elected overseers, and Councillor G. H. Hall was appointed in the place of Rev. E. T. Williams, who is retiring from the Council at the' end of this month.
Ambulance Car. The Clerk was in receipt of a letter from Lady Aberdare, on be- half of the Red Cross, offering a motor ambulance for the district. The cost of upkeep would have to be borne by the district. Air. Thomas Jones said that each colliery was supposed to provide a motor ambulance. Chairman: Yes, an ambulance of some kind. Mr. W. T. Bowen said there should be a motor ambulance at the disposal of the Council. There was a street accident the other day which called for an ambulance. He phoned to the P.D. at Aheraman, and a motor ambulance was sent, d-own in 0 minutes. The Chairman did not think the Council had power to purchase a car and let it out on hire. He sll^t gested that the question be deferred and that Lady Aberdare be written to asking her whether it was to be given free. Mr. vV. Lamburn moved this, .1- Mr. Rogers seconded.—Carried. > lit.
